Hi Tony,

Happy New Year. Hope you're well. Had some great views of the water rail already this year. It seems really unbothered by people.

Hi Gavin.

Happy New Year to you also. The rails do seem a little less bothered by people. It could be that they are now screened from the public that use the path that runs parallel to the ditch. I think that on occasions they can be spooked if binoculars are raised to quickly. I would love to be able to enlarge the reed bed with the possibility of them staying. The only problem is that I need to raise £12000, due to budget cuts in the park. Fingers crossed something might happen.
