A new viewing screen for looking over the landfill is almost complete. It can be found at the far end of the car park field at Lavell’s Lake, it can be accessed through the gate beyond the stile. The combination is the same as for Ron’s hide and Renton’s screen.
Currently there is just a screen and seat with hand rail to rest your arms when scanning the landfill, on Tuesday there should be a bit of a roof to help keep the rain off and some fencing to stop people from going onto the landfill and disturbing the birds.
Enjoy – a Great White Egret has already been seen from here but come the Spring it will be a good raptor and migration watchpoint.
This has been built with a grant from Hurst Residents.
