The Waterlogged Valley
As we all know the Ingrebourne Valley is Waterlogged and is a giant Scrape from one end to the other, and on both sides of the river. In my opinion it may not be a bad thing for a while. If it stays like this for some time I believe it could possibly attract some good migrants, especially if it subsides a bit and leaves some mud. There are already a good number of Snipe on the marsh which can be hard to spot or calculate unless they are disturbed. So my point is I think we should be extra vigilant in the next few months to try to spot what comes in there and not just from the viewpiont. Dave.
