Note from the warden at Walmsley Sanctuary: Will members visiting Walmsley please be careful and quiet in their approach to the tower hide as a large section of fencing has blown down in the gales. We hope to be working to do a temporary repair on Sunday morning so it may be worth avoiding at that time.
