WORK has begun on building a new £40,000 hide on the wetland reserve at Welney Wildlife Centre.
The new hide will be raised, making it accessible even in times of heavy flooding, and offer comfortable facilities from which to view the wildlife of Welney.
Reserve manager Leigh Marshall said the new 'south wing hide' will give visitors more choice when they visit the centre on occasions when the water levels on the washes have risen, as other areas of the reserve can become inaccessible.
Centre manager Julie Ward said: "We are keen to offer visitors the best experience possible when they visit the reserve, and not have their visit compromised by any flooding we may be experiencing."

The centre said that flooding is currently still affecting the washes, and can mean that the A1101 is closed at Welney village. It advises visitors to call before setting out.
