Bird Hide

In 2018 the Charity opened a bird hide at the bottom of Bennett’s Drift (off Leverett’s Lane) overlooking the town grazing marshes, with a view towards Southwold. 
The hide is dedicated to the memory of Tony Lancaster, a local resident and true birder whose family and friends contributed a large part of its cost. The hide is accessed on foot and the nearest car park is at Ferry Road. 

Many different species have been sighted including:
Marsh Harrier, Buzzard, Red Kite, Sparrowhawk, Great White Egret, Little Egret, Spoonbill, Water Rail, Black Redstart, Mandarin Duck (both male and female) and for almost a month in March 2019, a splendid Glossy Ibis. 


The Hide is open to all.  There is a visitor's book for comments and a diary to record what has been seen.
