  • Blog Post: A very special sleepout

    Last weekend marked this year’s Big Wild Sleepout. A national event hosted by the RSPB, the idea is to sleep outside in natures home and get connected with nature.

  • Blog Post: Barn Owls and Snow Buntings

    What a wild and windy day! I’ve been in the visitor centre this morning and was very impressed with the people who came for a walk and braved the wind. It’s definitely worth it, with thousands of wigeon and hundreds of lapwing and golden plover about. It’s worth hanging about till...
  • Blog Post: The beginning of the end...

    Autumn is definitely upon us. It seems to have sneaked up on us in the last couple of weeks. I was away for a few days at the very beginning of September and I came back to find conkers on the roads, crisp yellow leaves blowing in the wind and a definite chill in the air. It’s almost as if the...

    The warmer weather we have had since last weekend has sent some of our winter visitors back north for the breeding season, but it has also brought some of our summer visitors up from as far south as Africa!
