Abbey Timber supplied larch and Douglas fir for the construction of a new bird hide at Hule Moss. Hule Moss is a small oval loch located 2 miles North of Greenlaw on Greenlaw Moor. “The loch supports an internationally-important wintering population of pink-footed geese, and a bird-watching hide is provided.” Scottish Places writes.
The pink-footed goose (Anser brachyrhynchus) is a goose which breeds in eastern Greenland, Iceland and Svalbard. It is migratory, wintering in northwest Europe, especially Ireland, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and western Denmark.
Their voyage is a popular event and many bird watching fans gather every year to see them. The provided bird watching hide at Hule Moss was in poor condition and deemed unrepairable by members of the Scottish Wild Life Trust who were asked by the public to repair it. SWT applied for funding and once the Scottish National Heritage and the land owner approved the work the construction of the new hide began.
