Good news - the lovely Dexter cattle which we had on the reserve last summer are due back in early June. They do great conservation work by encouraging growth of wildflowers in the three meadows which we created for them especially. So we await their return with eagerness.

Our heron nest cameras have recently been capturing some great images and video clips of the nesting season in progress. A selection of images has now been put on in the gallery section of this website, starting at page 2.

Wildlife at the lake seems currently to be thriving whilst humans lie low due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Fewer visitors means birds and wildlife can move into spaces they might previously have avoided.

This is now full nesting season for our herons and once again our offshore cameras are picking up some great video footage and still pictures.
