BIRDWATCHERS can get closer to their feathered friends at Staffordshire Wildlife Trust’s newest attraction.

The Wolseley Centre’s new bird hide was unveiled on Friday by the trust’s patron, Sir James Hawley, the former Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire.

Featuring a range of viewing windows and a seating area, the wheelchair-friendly wooden hide was built by trust volunteers and funded by a £7,500 grant from the Biffa Award, which gives cash to community and environmental projects.

Guy Corbett-Marshall, chief executive of Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said: "This new bird hide will enable visitors to get closer to the wide range of wildlife which visit the 26-acre site."
