Hideout open for nature fans.

PUPILS from Coventry, Nuneaton and Bedworth have officially opened a new family friendly bird hide at Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve.

The Hideout is close to the Visitor Centre, has a fully accessible all-weather path and overlooks a feeding area which attracts a wide range of birds and wildlife.

Karl Curtis, director of reserves and community engagement, said: "The Hideout gives visitors an additional and family friendly bird hide and it is full of colourful displays and ID guides.

"It provides a great introduction to wildlife-watching and is well worth a visit over the summer holidays."

HSBC provided funding for The Hideout, while Volvo organised the delivery of gravel for the path, which was donated by Bartlett's.

Practical help to complete the project came from both Volvo and Severn Trent, who took part in Wild Work Days with the trust.

The Hideout was officially opened by pupils who took part in Nature Club sessions, funded by players of People's Postcode Lottery.

They were invited to celebrate the project with a day out at the reserve after completing The Wildlife Trust's 30 Days Wild challenge in June.
