A NATURE reserve three years in the making will open in Neston on Saturday.
During the last three years the Royal Society Protection Birds (RSPB) has been transforming land in the Dee Estuary to create RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands nature reserve.
The RSPB have already been forced to warn off nature-lovers who have trespassed on to the site, risking their own safety and that of the wildlife, to catch a glimpse of the reserve.
But the wait will be over this weekend when scores of visitors will be able to enjoy the new facilities, see lots of wildlife and learn about the estuary.
This work has been carried out with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, The Rural Development Programme for England, WREN, Biffaward, SITA Trust, Natural England and English Heritage.
Iolo Williams, wildlife presenter of BBC show Springwatch, will be joined by RSPB staff and children from Bishop Wilson CE Primary School, Puddington Lane, Neston, to launch the reserve on Friday before it opens to the public on Saturday.
