Lake Hide Clearance

Thursday, August 13th 2015

Today staff and volunteers have been very busy working in the area around the Lake Hide. The view from the hide was becoming obstructed by reeds and small trees.

By the end of the day much more of the lake was visible and now hopefully visitors will get better views of the Kingfishers and other wildlife that feed and live around the lake.

We also strimmed the vegetation on the new Wildfowl Feeding Area for the first time since it was planted. It is growing well and we hope it will soon be established enough for us to start selling duck food to scatter on the area from our new Wildfowl Feeding Platform. 

Thank you to those who came to help out today.  The view from the Hide looks much better!
