On the morning of 18 April, the Otter Estuary Interpretation boards were unveiled by local volunteers Doug Cullen and Ray Hamilton. The boards were illustrated by Mike Langman, and funded jointly by Devon Birds, Pebblebed Heath Conservation Trust, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Otter Valley Association. An array of representatives from the above Societies, and the local council, met on the beach at Budleigh where the first board is situated.
The second board can be found along the path to White Bridge, where the new Otter Scrapes can be viewed. This is adjacent to the Hide which contains various information and leaflets including the Society’s membership application forms
Devon Birds were very pleased to have helped fund these excellent information boards, and hopes they will prove interesting to birders and non-birders alike.
