View From "Robbies" Hide
This is the view across the River Colne from one of the bird hides on Fingringhoe Wick nature reserve. The reserve is in a worked-out gravel quarry. It is run by Essex Wild Life Trust. The reserve was for many years their headquarters. However, this has moved to TL9614 : Abbots Hall Farm HQ, Great Wigborough on the Blackwater. The view clearly shows the sandy beach, mudflats and an operational gravel pit in Alresford on the other bank. The wreck is that of the barge "Fly" the only one of three sister sips to survive their maiden voyage from a shipyard in Appledore (Devon), Bee and Ant sank in a great storm off Dover in 1899.
