As Gordon Ramsey would say....
Fresh marsh cutting DONE!!! Over the last few days we ahave been busy cutting all the vegetation on the fresh marsh and that is now complete. The sluice has now been closed and we are using the water we have stored in the reedbed to raise the levels. Over the coming weeks we will be flooding all of...

Can we beat the record this year?
Well with a bit of careful management here and there we will give it a good go... So what am I talking about I hear you ask? Over the last couple of winters our wildfowl numbers have been on the increase. Since 2009 our peak teal count has risen from just over 900...

Not just making up the numbers...
Last week, as I was working along the West bank path, I was stopped by a lady who asked me what “that flock of smaller birds” was. I suggested that they were probably starlings. “Oh”, she said and started to walk away looking for something else to watch. “Have you seen the...

Spot a crake
I have had great fun out of the office this morning getting wet and muddy opening up some areas of reed near the Island Hide. The plan is that water rails, young bearded tits or even a rare spotted crake may use this sheltered area to feed in this autumn. The area has been cut so that is can be viewed...

In the dock
In 2010, as part of the Titchwell Coastal Change Project we carried out some extensive improvement works to the fresh marsh. As well and creating and re-profiling islands we removed the encroaching reed from the edges. This reed was starting to take over making it difficult to manage and reducing viewing...

Along with wet, windy, horrible, unsettled and autumnal are all words that could describe the weather over the last couple of weeks. Looking back 12 months, we were in the grip of an icy blast but recently it has been series of stormy Atlantic depressions. Despite the conditions not being ideal for...
