Wednesday’s sightings

Its a dull overcast morning with a slight drizzle in the air, but the weather looks set to improve ready for the weekend and our Severn Wader Festival.  Find out more about the event here.  Work will continue on the South Lake today as part of our Autumn management regime so some disturbance to the scrape and deep lake will be inevitable.
