Having emailed Impetus Reclamation Limited a few days ago to enquire about renewed TBC access to the Reclamation Pond, Impetus confirmed to me that they anticipate the contractor being off site by early April, with access to TBC members hopefully by 11th April.  Impetus are to confirm the date with me, so keep posted on this site and members shouldn't access the Rec Pond until then.

Although having been reported flying off earlier following their initial discovery, the 2 Common Cranes appeared out of the mist distantly from the A178 at Petroplus at about 10.40.  They remained and the wet marsh for about 40 minutes until taking off, circling round for 5 minutes, gaining height, before flying off west towards Haverton, calling.  Six Pink-footed Geese and 2 Little Egrets were also present.  At Dormans Pool, the Cetti's Warbler sang briefly below the upper car park.
