Thank You

  I'd just like to say a Big Thank You to all the hard working
  volunteers at Cromwell Bottom, I love walking down by the
  riverside looking for Kingfishers and Dippers but I always
  did it with some trepidation as I was always looking at the floor
  in case I slipped or stood in a puddle of mud, but now its a pleasure
  to walk on there and you can now get nearer to the river without
  being attacked with nettles and brambles.
  Fantastic job you should all be proud of yourselves.
  Well Done.

    Birds seen today were Blue & Great Tit, LTT,  Bullfinch, Blackbird, Robin,
    2 Buzzard, Cormorant, Goosander, Dipper, Mallard, Wren, Heron, Magpie,
    Jay, Nuthatch, Reed Bunting and Kestrel.

Steps and Bird Hide

Jen and David built steps to our new hide. Meanwhile,

Dave, Alistair and Graham completed our new hide in very blustery conditions.

May we point out that the hide is not available to the public at the moment.

The Beast from the East....

It has been a challenging time for wildlife in the weather we've been having - and a challenging time for the hardy volunteers on the bird feeding rota too! So, a big thank you to all the regular feeders. We've hardly missed a day I think.
Thank you also to the many visitors who arrive with seed, mealworms, peanuts etc to add to the menu. Your efforts are really appreciated and we hope you enjoy the reward of a good view of the bird life around the feeding areas at the cabins and in the reserve. The robins are now forming a queue on the shelf as we arrive!
