After the shock on the largest tidal surge for 14 years on the Humber we are beginning to see the paths emerging from the surrounding water. This means that the paths to singleton and townend are now dry again allowing you to get there to watch the bird of prey roost. Currently, taking place between 3 and 4pm. Ousefleet hide which has remained open throughout the week is where most of our birds are. This morning there were teal, wigeon, shelduck, gadwall, lapwing and dunlin up there. The path to marshland and xerox hides will remain closed until the weekend to allow the water to drain off and for us to repair sections of the path.
Here are more photos from wet Blacktoft.
This is singleton lagoon now topped up with water. Remember what it looked like up until the end of Sunday - mud with snipe!
The ramp to marshland - you can see the water reached half way up the ramp!
Ousefleet now back to normal - wet! And the ducks seem to like it too.
Looks superb !
