Conditions have improved around the reserve so we have been able to open the Tern Hide car park and Tern Hide today. The car park is covered in a layer of silt and some surface water so please do take care as it will be very slippery. Lapwing Hide is open as usual although only accessible via the outer path due to flooding on the alternative route. Goosander Hide is temporarily closed as the door lock is broken; please do not attempt to get in as this is causing further damage to the lock. Ivy North Hide, Ivy South Hide and Woodland Hide are all open as usual. Great views of the Great White Egret from Ivy North Hide this morning!
