From gravel pits to wildlife haven.

Congratulations to the North Cave Wetlands centre which has won an award for transforming old sand and gravel quarries into a magnificent wetland area. I saw avocets like the ones in this painting when I last visited.
At one time I drove all the way to Exmouth to see these birds and now we have them here in Yorkshire!
