The reserve is alive, with the sound of warblers
The sun has been shining (well in between the odd shower, but it's certainly a start). Apologies for the lack of recent sightings updates in the past week, we've been having some technical difficulties, that are hopefully resolved now. Down at the Eric Morecmabe and Allen hides, a little gull...

A very special morning...
The changing of the clocks last week made a 4.30am start all the more difficult this morning as I set off for the weekly bittern watch with the stars still out! But my efforts were certainly rewarded with some fantastic bittern behaviour at Barrow Scout fields! On my arrival at the usual listening...

Well first of all I would like to apologise for the lack of sightings updates. We have had a few technical problems, so hopefully they are now sorted. One of the undoubted highlights at the moment has been our bittern activity. Sightings have been fairly frequent and quite wide ranging, with reports...

Recent Sightings - Spring is springing
The fantastic weather of the past couple of weeks has meant the whole reserve is looking brilliant! Spring is starting to gain momentum now, most of our resident birds are singing and we're awaiting the arrival of our migrants with baited breath (apparently ospreys have already been reported in the...

This morning was no exception, as I set off from my home in Carnforth just as it was getting light and made my way to the reserve....

Otterly brilliant February sightings...
Sorry for yet another shameless otter pun, but otter sightings have been excellent over the past few days. For those of you who have been getting up at silly o'clock in the morning to come and catch a glimpse of one of our most charismatic residents, what I'm about to say will no doubt make you...

Spring is in the air??
The ice has completely defrosted and we now have open water back on the reserve! This has brought the numbers of birds back up again with teal and wigeon very much in evidence in large numbers. They have been sharing the pools with species such as pintail and goldeneye , with the latter of the two...

Happy in between Christmas and New year bit!!
Well the cold frosty weather is now a distant memory and we have been reunited with our old summer friend.....rain! And there has been plenty of it too, it is definitely welly weather, with most of the paths on the reserve needing at least waterproof boots as a minimum and maybe even a canoe in certain...
