The Warden and staff team would like to apologise that Ousefleet Hide will be closed on Tues 27th & Weds 28th August for essential maintenance work replacing the roof. The rest of the reserve will be open as usual and sure to provide some fantastic birding and wildlife.

  • Certainly is some great birding at the moment with the recent regular sightings of the Montagu's harrier and then this morning 2 curlew sandpipers, 2 knot, 2 bar tailed godwits, 40 ruff, 16 spotted redshank, common and green sandppiper, avocet, black-tailed godwits, ringed plover 40+ snipe, 5 greenshank, redshank, curlew and lapwing. Also bearded tits regularly showing around lagoons and still plenty of marsh harrier activity. Pete
