Tern hide Car park closed due to flooding.

Yesterday the Dockens Water stream went into spate after the torrential rain in the morning. It rose steadily during the day and by 4.45pm it had crossed Eliingham Drove and started to flood Tern Hide car park.

Flooded oak, birch and Sycamore woodland.

This morning the Tern hide car park is still full of water and above knee depth and is therefore locked. Ibsley Water is still viewable from the Goosander and Lapwing Hides and the rest of the reserve is open as usual.

  1. The hide is actually still accessible and hopefully the water will go down enough to allow easier access, if not it may be necessary to relocate to the Ivy South hide, a notice will be posted in the morning if this proves necessary.
