But, some 'recent' happenings:-
During the winter of 2015/16 we reworked the islands at Deeping Lakes, massively increasing the available nesting area for terns and gulls and creating low lying muddy areas. Winter rains and rising ground water should cover most of the islands, killing off any vegetation and retaining the bare ground favoured by nesting terns.
We built a couple of viewing screens overlooking the islands.
In August 2016 we had a break-in at Deeping Lakes. Repairing the shipping container door cost over £200. We lost most of our hand tools but the insurance covered the loss.
A few years ago we installed a couple of artificial otter holts at Deeping Lakes.
We soon captured images of otters near one of the holts. Recently otter sightings have become more common, with several sightings in October 2016.
