One thing that all can help with is fixing the 'bleeding over of text' in a number of articles, which appears like this:

 This is a fairly short piece of text - if it was longer it would go over the edge of the page 

This is caused by spaces being left at the start of a paragraph when we transferred all the data from the original bird database.

All you need do, when seeing a page with text stretching right across and messing up the layout, is edit the text (use main edit tab at top of article) so that there are no spaces at the side of the page. example: (--- are used to denote spaces here)

This large artificial reservoir lies in north-east Slovakia close to the border with Poland and forms an important stop-over point for migrants during passage periods.
---Many species can be seen in these varied habitats including storks, Lesser Spotted Eagle, Spotted Crake, Corn Crake, Red-backed Shrike and Common Rosefinch. However, much of the area is pine forest and frequented by Hazel

The spaces before 'many species' is the culprit. Simply get rid of these spaces and the problem is cured. For the sake of breaking up the text for easier viewing, it's best to have a blank line to separate these paragraphs... so it looks like this
