2nd February 2013 – A walk to the hide revealed how muddy the bank is due to the work being carried out by YWT. The section up to the steps is very difficult at the moment unless wellies or stout footwear are worn, the results should be well worth it though, the middle marsh section will have permanent scrapes and sheep will be allowed to graze the area once the water controls and fences are put in place. This should add to the already varied habitats found around the site. Mute swan on the river and little egret on the strays.
