Our monthly (except in summer) Sunday morning work parties on the reserve continue to flourish. Numbers joining these have been up over the last few months and this has allowed more essential work to be done.

We are delighted that some activity has been observed through our new offshore camera. Very obligingly herons seem possibly to be about to take up occupancy of a nest on which our camera is focussed. Read this whole article for a sample picture and for an overall update on this project.

Our wildlife camera project is taking shape. A camera has now been successfully installed offshore and the first pictures have been generated. Work on the onshore component of the installation is now underway and soon we hope to be able to advise how you might view the live pictures. Watch this space!

This winter FoSL converted a 1940s pillbox, close to the reserve, into a bat roost. This involved narrowing the gun slots, putting up rough boards for the bats to cling to and erecting a very solid, locked door.
