9 prime marinas, the most helpful staff, the best of boating and berthing

Rehousing a Wagtail nest in the marina

10 August 2017

We are very fortunate to have a wide range of wildlife on and around Fambridge Yacht Haven. But this is one of the more unusual encounters...

The owner of a sailing boat berthed on Blue Pontoon noticed a Wagtail's nest nestled in his boom.

Not wanting to disturb them and following advise from the RSPB, the owner constructed a bird box and we mounted it to a pontoon pile nearby.

The nest, with three chicks and an adult, was carefully placed in the box and rehoused. The Wagtail family are going well and enjoying their new home. Look out for them on the Blue Pontoon on your next visit!
