Edithvale Bird Hide, Melways  93 D8
Volunteers are generously manning the hide extra evenings to allow as many 
people as possible to enjoy the close viewing of the rare Painted Snipe. People 
are gaining excellent photos from the hide, even with small digital cameras.
    Access beside the hide itself or along the tracks within the fenced area is 
NOT PERMITTED. It is most disappointing that a few unethical people have 
jeopardised the chances for others to also enjoy viewing and photographing this 
rare bird. Risking disturbing  possible breeding occurring here is totally 
disgraceful and thoughtless.
    On no account are the birds to be pursued or flushed. It would be a shame 
to discontinue the service due to several selfish people.
    It is also important for people to come through the gate gently and ascend 
the stairs as quietly as possible as the bird is quite nervous now.
Opening Times; this Saturday and Sunday  1pm to 7pm.
Wednesday evenings,  6pm to 7.30pm, until the water dries out too much.
