A PROJECT to help birdwatchers with limited mobility is set for a new lease of life thanks to a Lottery grant.

The Suffolk Ornithologists' Group has published a guide called Easy Birdwatching since 1990, which gives information about access and facilities for the disabled and is given free to anyone with limited mobility who requests a copy.

The £1,550 grant was given by the National Lottery Awards for All programme to allow them to update the guide.

Group chairman Trevor Kerridge said: "We are delighted to have received funding to enable us to produce a revised version of Easy Birdwatching, which after more than a decade is getting rather out of date. The aim of the book is to enable Suffolk's resident and visiting birdwatchers to make the most of their hobby around the county, in spite of being unable to cover the sort of ground that most of us take for granted."

The group hopes to be able to publish the new edition towards the end of 2002.

For further information about the guide, contact Trevor Kerridge at 3 Cavenham Road, Tuddenham St Mary, Suffolk, IP28 6SE.
