A wildlife reserve in Sussex has revealed the impact the recent flooding has had on the animals in its care.
Much of site belonging to the charity 'The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust' in Arundel was under water for two months. The flooding meant that birds could not roost, hibernating animals were flushed out, and their food sources were killed off.
The reserve has only just fully reopened - and visitors are slowly returning to the site. Managers say the money the firm has lost will impact on plans for conservation work. Charlotte Wilkins reports.
The interviewee is Paul Stevens, Grounds manager.
