A new viewing area has been created at Willow Tree Fen as cranes return to the area for the third year.

The work which has been carried out at the nature reserve between Baston and Spalding will allow people to visit the site without disturbing the wildlife.

A track which cut through the centre of the reserve has been removed and the spoil used to create a raised car park and viewing area.

The car park and view point are open every day from 9am until dusk (or 9pm) when Crane Watch volunteers are on site. They will help visitors see the cranes and other wildlife, and answer any questions.

Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust bought the land in 2009. Since it became a nature reserve 1,137 species have been recorded including 162 different species of beetle, 346 species of flowering plant and 173 species of bird.
