No ‘Milton Monster’ this week, but…

… we did see lots of families at this week’s Portsmouth Home Education Group session on Friday. We found a lot of tiny shore crabs and built some truly spectacular dens. Whilst we were there, we bumped into a great friend of the nature reserve, Jim Craise. Jim is well known in the area for sharing extraordinary photos of Milton wildlife across social media. He has sent me two photos of possibly the friendliest friend of Milton Locks.

Our Robins are humble little birds with big personalities. They are often around us when we work with people on the reserve, possibly hoping we will unearth some tasty morsels of them. They are probably our most recognisable garden bird, which I think gives them a special place at Milton Locks.

Thanks for the wonderful photos Jim!
