North Hide Opening at Westhay Moor

 9th Oct 2017

We were delighted to celebrate the opening of the North Hide at our Westhay Moor Reserve at the end of September, and invite along the people who had helped make it happen.

A big thank you goes to Vidor credits who helped fund the new two storey hide, which is quietly nestled amongst the reedbeds and is the perfect place to take a peek at Somerset’s wildlife. It was also great to welcome our Patron, Simon King to the event, as well as students from Priddy school, who during the hides construction drew the wildlife species that you will see along the side. Why not take a visit there this Autumn!
Here are a few pictures from the day:
