AUTUMN FUNGUS FORAY
We had a good sunny afternoon for our fungus foray with Gordon Simpson on September 29th. Numbers of toadstools were comparable with last year, but the range of species was rather different, probably due to the different weather. There will be a full account, and list of what we found, in the next Newsletter.


THE NEW ACTIVITY ROOM IS HERE!

Our new activity room now sits in a lovely sheltered and sunny site looking out over the reserve. It is light and spacious, dry and warm, and is already proving to be a wonderful facility for the reserve.

New Bird Hide
Our two-person bird hide occupies an elevated position overlooking the big pond. It provides excellent views over the water and also into the reeds and willows surrounding the pond.
