Last October saw the official opening of the new stretch of raised walkway in the Sebes marshes and of the new bird observatory built at its extreme end.
This new facility of the Sebes and Flix Meander Wildlife Nature Reserve is situated on the walkway of the riverside wood, from where a new branch begins going downstream to the confluence of two channels or dry meanders.
The work was carried out by staff of the Grup de Natura Freixe, with the support in the finishing touches of the observatory of a professional carpenter.
This facility forms part of the actions requested by the Flix Town Council in line with the help to natural protected spaces of the Generalitat de Catalunya. With this help the parking area has also been improved and the access areas at Mas del Director (Information Centre) and renewal of the informational panels, among other things.
Those present were the mayor of Flix, Marc Mur, the councillor Albert Mani, the president of the GNF, Jospe Manel Albiac, members of the body of Rural Agents and the team of workers from the Sebes Reserve who made it possible.
From the beginning of the management of the Sebes Reserve, the facilities of the Reserve have gradually improved and ornithological tourism has been encouraged. Currently, we have educational and informative infrastructures that have allowed consolidation of an economic activity in the setting of this natural space managed by the Grup de Natura Freixe.
Access to this new facility will be restricted to avoid excessive disturbance to the fauna and to help in the observation and photographing of species of birds.
