After two months of flooding, grass has finally reappeared on Ferry Mere and along the north of Ferry Lagoon. This has attracted waders with approximately 1500 black-tailed godwit, 10+ ruff, 3 avocet, oystercatcher and displaying lapwing. Wintering ducks are still around in abundance with shoveler, wigeon, teal and pintail all present in number. On the opposite side of the bank, a kingfisher has been seen flying along the river on a couple of occasions.
