2014 - Built viewing platform

After much moaning about the positions of the hides/viewing platforms, Mike Pointon approached Tom Dalrymple (NRW) about a favourable positioned hide/VP. After a number of on site meetings, it was decided to construct a VP (now called Snipe VP) overlooking Prior's lagoon.

Material, machinery and expertise was provided by NRW, while extra manpower and expertise was provided by FOGL

Work started at the end of August, and was completed in about 4/5 weeks meeting one/twice a week.

This has proved a very popular facility.


A major clearing of rubbish around a section of the Sea Wall took place in 2015 involving NRW and FOGL personnel.
