Netley Meadow Bird Feeding Station - Help us
Information Triangle

I was saddened to hear that a young lad had decided to go to the Netley Meadow bird feeding area on Sunday 30th November armed with an air pistol!!

I would like to thank the person who called the police and for also alerting me to this situation.

Could I ask regular visitors / residents in the area to be on the look out for a male youth 16 - 18 years old, with light brown hair, and who was wearing a black jacket & light grey track suit bottoms.

If you see this person, or other persons hanging around the bird feeding area, and they are up to no good to immediately call the police and make a note of the person(s) descriptions(s).

Other steps will also now be taken to aid the monitoring of this area.

Many Thanks

Steve Songhurst, Warden.
