Watery wildlife

At this time of year, the best views of the ospreys is from either Waderscrape or Shallow Water hides on the Lyndon Nature Reserve. In addition to the osprey family, there is a lot of other wildlife to see from the hides, including waders, gulls, water rail, water vole and flocks of wildfowl. Here are some great photographs by volunteer Matthew Blurton of the wildlife from the scrape and channels just in front of Waderscrape hide!
