The ice may have gone but there's a sense of deja vu - yet again the river Hull overtopping the flood defence north of Hempholme Lock:
As if that's not enough we've also had winds to contend with - a 'North Sea' state on both reservoirs and a few trees uprooted in the woodlands.
Birdwise the woodock at the Wildlife Centre has been erratic - present every other day - not always showing as well as this (one of two on Sunday):
Now to a couple of events; the monthly reserve walk takes place this Saturday at 10am - all welcome and free with standard admission. Join the Warden on a guided walk to try and catch up with some of the above.
We also have the 'Mammal Safari' event on Sunday afternoon. Still plenty of places left - we'll be showing participants how to identify the tracks and field signs of many otters, foxes, deer and water voles - and demoing the trail cameras we use to view them. We'll also be using some longworth traps to live catch some smaller critters - bank or field voles if we're lucky. If you want to book a place ring us on 01377 270690. Free with standard admission.
