I called into the wetlands for about 30 minutes yesterday. The water level is higher than I have ever seen it. But I did not see many birds. The usual purple swamp hens and dusky moor hens were not around and the masked plover family had also disappeared. There are fish in the water, fish of a reasonable size, ie over a foot long, swimming close to the surface, and seen from Bittern hide.. I saw some fish jmping from the water last week. I know nothing about fish. There were 2 pairs of swans, with cygnets. Also I saw a dead red bellied snake, on the road.

I think that they may have cut the grass a bit.
