Come along and help us finish work on our first ever Observation Hide, ready for its official opening on March 8.

This has been our busiest winter ever with lots of ditch work completed, together with new ponds and scrapes, new paths, lots of hedging and the erecting lots of nestboxes ready for the nesting season – come along and view the changes to the reserve.

The building work on the hide should all be finished by mid February, but we need to paint it with preservative and work still needs to be done on the area around the hide together with lots of other tasks.

Please wear old clothes as the coating is difficult to remove. There are also some tree stumps left to burn and a drain pipe to be buried.
Let’s hope that the weather is better by then.

Families welcome. Come along for the whole or part of the day.

Meet in the reserve car park at 10. 

Despite the flooding on the Levels access to the reserve is not a problem and the reserve is not flooded. The only route likely to be flooded being the A361 around Burrowbridge.
