We have been very lucky recently with some very exciting species of bird being seen on the reserve an on our tern island we have a large number of Common Tern and some Black-Headed Gulls beginning to nest. Below is a list of some of the species we have seen on the reserve over the last few weeks.
Three individuals appeared on the reserve very recently and have been seen feeding in the pools in front of the visitor centre.
