THE SWALE NNR
Visitors to the Swale National Nature Reserve at Harty, Sheppey will now find two new information boards, one at Shellness car park and the other (above) at the end of the track down from Harty church.
The reserve currently looks as good as it has done for many years and is also enjoying a very good breeding season and so is well worth a visit.
Continuing the reserve improvements being carried out by Elmley Conservation Trust (ECT), the new Seawall Hide has recently had steps and a handrail installed for ease of access.
The installation of the signs means that access to the Tower Hide at the rear of the reserve is now available, access is through the gate illustrated below, around three quarters of a mile along the top of the sea wall from the Shellness car park (details on the information board).
On going through the gate, follow the top of the bund until the first gate at its end and then, turning left, follow the boundary fence round to the hide. Please return the same way.
