Beddington Farmlands Reed Planting Update

Spent this afternoon with Monika having a look at the progress with the reed planting on the Southern Lake. The project got a bit of a beating last week with the floods- some of the cells were pushed over and some of the reeds were also washed out but after some repair work hopefully things should be okay. Some of the young reeds got totally submerged for several days.
Also had a quick look around- 4 Ringed Plover on the enclosed beds, 1 male Wheatear on the mounds, 2 Common Sandpiper on the Southern Lake and also five Egyptian Geese (pic 3).
