Come along at 10am on 23 February 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.

Families welcome. Come along for the whole or part of the day. Please email simon.beard@hawkandowl.org or telephone 07919095705 for further information.

    In spite of less than perfect weather, a brave group of volunteers arrived ready for action. The new hide received a good coat of wood preservative, a pipe was laid from the hide roof to feed the new pond and yet more brash was removed from the ditch sides.. not bad for 6 people. Many thanks to all involved.
    Our next task will be Saturday March 29th … the Woodland Trust are donating us more hedging plants and these will help screen the path to the hide, but they need planting first! Join us and help make our reserve grow. Meet at Car Park 10am
