  • Art in the Purfleet Hide: Tony O'Brien Images 26th September - 1st October

  • New Wildlife Additions In The Playground

    I have been spotted in the Adventure Playground over the last couple of days and I suppose I ought to tell you what I have been doing... Last summer Chris Campbell painted some of the timber uprights in blue or white but the weather at the time precluded me embarking on stage two...

    So, here for starters are some of the new adornments to said pillars...

    More will follow when I get the chance to get back down there with my Sharpies!

    and some sightings from yesterday....
