The Coastal Conservation Group are delighted to say that Phase 1 of the Whitburn CP Project has been completed. The Large Pond/Wader Scrape is finished and has a brand new Timber Screen overlooking it. The Small Pond is finished and is just waiting for Mother Nature to fill it up as quickly as possible. The Bird Feeding Area has been prepared and a little pond has been constructed for birds to drink/bathe in just in front of where the Stone Viewing Screen will be erected. The concrete foundation is in ready for the Stone Screen, and a lovely new path leading up to it is also done. Its all been done in the two weeks we were told it would take and everything is bang on schedule. We are extremely happy with how this Project has gone so far and cant thank the contractors enough for the great job they have done. A site meeting was had on sunday morning with the next contractor and fingers crossed work on Phase 2 (the construction of the Stone Viewing Screen) should begin in the middle of February. Here's hoping it goes just as smoothly as the first part!
