Well done Saltholme on this.

But I think too much time was spent on being "green" in the centre and not enough thought went the outside into the positioning of the hides, some of the pathways and the lack of planting of bushes/shrubs/trees to cover up some of the mud mounds and these bushes would also give some protection to the birds. Also some seats along some of the longer length paths would not have gone amiss.
