VANDALS have dealt a blow to one of the hides at the Far Ings nature reserve on the outskirts of Barton-on-Humber.

Until it can be repaired, access has had to be closed by the site's owners, the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust..

For those hoping to catch a glimpse of reedbed species, it is possible to peer through a  space in the adjacent hedge - but the experience is not quite so amenable.

The extend of the vandalism is not known, nor by what date  the hide might be repaired and re-opened.

Fortunately, there are other hides on the reserve which offers views of similar habitat - home to bitterns, bearded tits, Cetti's warblers, sedge warblers, reed warblers and more.

  Access denied - the affected hide at Far Ings
      This will be the view when the hide is back in service
