There are plans to drain the Lockwood Reservoir. This is a dream come true for all of the regular patch watchers at Walthamstow…however there is currently no access during working hours due to a gravel track being laid around the top edge. Draining hasn’t begun yet but fingers crossed it will soon and they will get the track out the way. I think it WILL get some decent waders. A brief visit last night with water levels higher than I’ve ever seen I had a Redshank, c18 Common Sands and a tame adult Dunlin, with David B adding Turnstone and Greenshank to that the previous evening – Not bad for Walthamstow. Hopefully much more to come before work on the Lockwood is refilled in December.
