Celebrating the Edithvale Seaford Wetlands Bird Hide

One of the many things I love about storytelling, is being asked to deliver stories into places where they might not normally be heard.

Collaborator and musician buddy, Sarah Depasquale, and I were invited to bring our story of 'Tom, the red-necked Stint' to the re opening of this beautiful bird hide.

Right by a busy road, you step across a small wooden bridge, through the Melaleuca trees to a small two story wooden structure. The hide feels damp and dark, full of atmosphere; the strip windows allow shafts of light to piece the gloom and offer a magical view of the lake teeming with bird life.

The Friends Group have kept the handmade signs and information panels, so there is also a sense of the history of the hide.

There is access for for those using wheel chairs and walkers and a mezzanine platform for those who don't mind the stairs.

I hesitate to use the word, as its not my sort of word - but this place really feels like a 'sacred space'.
