Blogger: Jon Reeves, Site Manager for the Ouse Washes
The ideal conditions on the Ouse Washes last week, which resulted in fantastic birding opportunities, are now a memory. High tides coupled with rainfall in the catchment area has resulted in a rising flood which is now bank to bank and making bird watching more of a challenge. Farmland birds can be viewed from the visitor centre are continuing to delight, with often over 100 birds feeding in close proximity at any one time, these include, tree sparrow, house sparrow, reed bunting, yellow hammer, brambling, gold finch, green finch and chaffinch.
