Conserving the Devonshire Avon from source to sea


by | Jan 10, 2014 | Main | 0 comments

On Saturday 25th January, Devon Wildlife Trust is holding an Open Day on South Efford Marsh and would like to invite local residents to come and see how the wildlife reserve is developing two years after the new tidal gate was installed.  There will be a number of people there to give information about the various things to be seen, including our two local birders Rod Bone and Eric Wotton, and Anissia White will be there to update us on her botanical research on the saltmarsh.  A series of guided walks is planned from 10.30am until 3.00pm.  Soup and hot drinks will be available to take the chill off a winter’s day.

If you would like to take part on one of these walks DWT have asked that everyone contact them to book please, so that they can ensure that everyone gets a place, and so that they can have an idea of numbers.

Visitors to the marsh will also be able to use the newly completed hide which, in spite of all the awful weather, was finished just before Christmas.  It has been put up about halfway down the marsh, and gives a good view over the newly developing saltmarsh and, also, over the bank behind to the river.
