Work continues at Sculthorpe on the new wetlands area of the reserve. This new area is currently not open to the public, but we are delighted to report that the area is already providing habitat and feeding grounds for a number of species. We have already recorded sightings of Little Ringed Plovers, Lapwings, Oystercatchers, Little Egrets, Herons, Cormorant, Common Sandpiper, Redshank, and a Cetti’s warbler,

Last week volunteers were moving sleepers, stringers and boards from near the new wetland hide to the start of a new stretch of meandering woodland boardwalk nearby.

Volunteer, Richard Tree, took the following images of the materials for the new boardwalk being moved:

Access by vehicle is limited so most things are moved by hand or with a trailer or cart.


It was a team effort to move these heavy materials.


Items have been stacked close to where they will be used.


Volunteers will continue to work on this boardwalk this week (10/10/21).


The boardwalk will be positioned so that it curves through woodland and joins onto existing Sculthorpe walkways.


The map above shows the path of the new walkway that will loop through woodland from existing reserve walkways and grant public access to the new in-progress wetlands hide.
