The south side of Walthamstow Wetlands, including the Engine House, is still closed today following on from Monday's flooding incident. We hope the site will be back open again tomorrow. The north side will however be open today although there will be no access to toilets.

The annual tufted duck moult is well underway at .Tufted ducks gather each year to replace their flight feathers&as a result become flightless for some time.They choose the Wetlands as it has the necessary food resources&provides safety from predators

Check out this large&colourful wasp spider found at ! It keeps itself safe from predators by looking just like a common wasp - even though it is not dangerous itself. Its orb webs can be found in the grasses at the Wetlands where it lays its egg-sacs

Walthamstow Wetlands has opened today however the 1,2,3 path remains closed due to wind blown trees that remain unsafe. The main path on the south side will be the only available route. The north side will be opened shortly once paths are cleared.

Walthamstow Wetlands is closed today due to forecast winds of gale force, gusting up to 45 mph. It would not be safe to open the site so the gates will remain closed for the duration of the day. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Was meeting a friend at but arrived early so had a look round The Paddock across the road. A lovely little wildlife area. This speckled wood butterfly posed nicely for a photo. I heartily recommend the sharing breakfast platter at the Engine House Cafe. Delicious!
