Went to Bough Beech Reservoir in Kent yesterday and was shocked to see how little water there was! The main reservoir was very low and the northern basin was totally devoid of water. Was this the result of the recent changes in wildlife management or was there some other reason for the change?
Another Birder told me he had recently visited Abberton Reservoir which is in Essex on the other side of the Thames and that was very low too. So it seems it is just a reflection of the dry summer we had. Let’s hope it rains soon to replenish supplies.
