    Heavy rain and flooding has affected bird numbers in Lincolnshire, according to the RSPB.

    The organisation said rising water levels had damaged nests and breeding grounds.

    Laura Harpham from the RSPB, at Frampton Marsh, near Boston, said wading birds were most at risk, including ground-nesting avocets.

    In March, nature reserves in the county suffered from dry conditions which put the same birds at risk from predators.
