Lower Test Nature Reserve
A few pictures from a somewhat damp visit to the lower Test Nature Reserve this morning (Tuesday 5th September).
Interestingly, the osprey, (presumably the same one from Fishlake Meadows) has been seen in the area. I didn’t spot the bird today.
I have however, had a positive response from Hampshire & IOW Wildlife Trust about the idea of installing a platform or two to encourage ospreys to nest in the area.
They are already in touch with people doing similar work in Dorset.
I didn’t get a shot of the best bird I saw. It was a sparrow hawk, hunting his prey at great speed.
There is a lot of “alien”, rapid growing, himalayan balsam on the reserve at the moment.

We carried out some scrutiny today into actions taken by Southern Health NHS Trust, following examples of neglect and inappropriate standards of care which, in some cases, led to the death of patients in their care.
