KILL THE PROPOSED YWT VISITOR CENTRE AT SPURN, NOT THE MAGNIFICENT VIEW DOWN SPURN

As many will know, the YWT are intent in erecting a large two-storey visitor centre with a large wind turbine included in one of the fields bordering the Canal Scrape, which the vast majority of local residents believe will ruin the scenic views down Spurn peninsula and visiting birders believe will do that as well as be damaging to migrating birds. If you would like to add your support please go to GAZPICSVIEW.WORDPRESS.COM to sign the ipetition.

NEW SPURN BIRD OBSERVATORY

As you may be aware, Spurn Bird Observatory have started a fundraising campaign to purchase a new Observatory building in Kilnsea to help with their migration studies and other educational work.
