THE bird hide at Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands has been refurbished and reopened thanks to a $20,000 federal government grant.
The Friends of the Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands have been lobbying for the past few years to have the bird hide restored.
The bird hide is a two-story building that offers an excellent view of the wetlands to seek out wildlife.
It is located on the south side of Edithvale Rd and is open from 1-5pm on Saturdays and Sundays. It is manned by volunteers from the Friends of Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands.
