Digger at work in Hempstead Meadows nature reserve, Uckfield

A massive digger is working on the Hempstead Meadows Local Nature Reserve in Uckfield to improve the flow of water from a spring fed ditch outlet to a fish pass on the River Uck.

The digger can be seen near the entrance to the reserve from the Waitrose car park.

Chairman of the nature reserve managing committee Dr Martyn Stenning said the work was minor but would improve the flow of water at times of flood and the digger would be gone soon.
