We've had some horrendous weather this week with high winds and a LOT of rain. With the surrounding drainage system so high it's over-topping in places Ham Wall is almost full to the brim in some areas and causing a few problems. There is one area of the reserve where we are actually trying to...

The final push to complete the work in Phase 1 (the section in front of the 2nd viewing platform) has enabled us to complete the works and we are now allowing water levels to rise in this section. As the levels rise, albeit slowly, the habitat should become suitable for wading birds at first (with several...

It's been a pretty dry week at Ham Wall, which has enabled us to work full steam ahead with management work in Phase 1 (the section in front of the 2nd platform) and things are looking really good out there.

The area in front of the 1st viewing platform continues to offer a wide range of birds to please the more experienced birder as well as the newbies.

The area in front of the 1st viewing platform is a top place for a bit of bird watching at the moment. We are aiming to hold the water levels at their current position to create a great feeding area for ducks and waders. The varying heights of the islands offer varying depths of water to suit a wide...

Recent Sightings at RSPB Ham Wall 05.10.12
Work has now finished in front of the first viewing platform and we have been gradually raising water levels in here over the past week to suppress any re-growth on the islands. Happily, the by product of this is splashy islands being enjoyed by a host of ducks and waders. It's a pleasing site at...
