Things are looking up...
Following on from my last slightly cautious blog about the arrival of spring I can now safely say that things have definitely picked up at Radipole and Lodmoor. My walk to work yesterday morning was greeted with the sound of recently arrived Reed Warblers which were obviously keen to advertise their...

A 'spring' update
Is this weekend the end of the cold weather? I’d rather not risk saying it is but at least the Weymouth reserves feel a little more spring like. There’s been some real spring highlights over the last few weeks, perhaps best of all being up to six Garganey which have been seen well from the...

Let it snow...
This is my fourth winter at the Weymouth Wetlands and I’ve come to realise that snow in Weymouth isn’t as common as it is back in my homeland of South Wales. However, when it does snow in Weymouth the place comes alive with birds. You would have almost certainly noticed that we had snow last...

A big birdy told me...
I had a slightly bizarre encounter with one of our wintering Bitterns yesterday afternoon. One of the great things about working at Radipole is having to walk through the reserve every time I need to get to the office. This enables me to sneak in a bit of extra birdwatching and in the past its lead to...

Beardies on the boardwalk
If there’s one species of bird which Radipole is famous for it must be the Bearded Tit. Not a day goes by that a visitor doesn’t come into the Discovery Centre and ask us about them. Back last winter you may remember us mentioning some reed cutting in preparation for thatching the roof...

Is it a otter? Is it a Bearded tit? No! It's a man on a big machine!
Recent visitors to either Lodmoor or Radipole may have been wowed with some wonderful wildlife in the past few weeks. There was a spectacular purple heron at Radipole a few weeks ago, looking a bit wacky and alternative. These relatives of the grey heron are ever so slowly moving up into the UK and have...

The Starlings are back in town!
As the nights draw in and become colder, going out in the evenings might not be top of your agenda but if I was to tell you that an evening visit to Lodmoor could produce one of nature's most spectacular shows... a Starling murmuration... you might think twice! It's been several decades...

Pigs, snipers and Subbuteo
Radipole is alive with wildlife at them moment. After spending 2 days down in the centre on the weekend I couldn't stop myself 'disappearing' out onto the reserve a few times a day to see what was around. The first thing that will strike you when you arrive is that the water infront of...

We're soggy, but still smiling
It's been a few weeks since the reserve and new Discovery Centre dissappeared under water. But against all the odds we have not only managed to clear the initial mess, reopen most of the trails, but also give the centre a deep clean completly clear the space and dry the space out. In short we will...
