Destruction of the Bird Hide at Thrupp Lake

Remains of the bird hide after the fire

Unfortunately, since the last newsletter was sent out, the bird hide at Thrupp Lake has been burned down by vandals.

It is very sad that youngsters should take delight in destroying  something that gave pleasure to many people. We don’t know yet whether or not the hide will be rebuilt.
