This is the view from inside the new bird hide which has recently been erected, and is to be dedicated in memory of two well known local enviromentalist's Pete Double and Gerard Le Claire. The structure of the hide has been excavated into the sand embankment on the south side of the sand pit, a commercial operation currently run by, the very helpful, Jason Simon, and overlooks the freshwater "lake" left by many years of sand extraction by this long established family business. The hide is completely within the profile of the bank, and will enable bird watchers to view the abundant birdlife that frequents the water, especially at high tide, when many waterfowl gather, and is also the location where one of the last Sand Martin colonies in Jersey, will be seen nesting. The area is rich in wildlife, with the Jersey green lizard also a common resident.
