This new sign appeared on Thursday morning just as you enter Dumbarton Drive from the roundabout with Bellvista Blvd. BeCA has been lobbying for some sort of signage like this for some time. A new family of ducks and chicks have been spotted around the estate and this sign is to ask motorists to keep an eye out for them and other wildlife.
Recently a Bellvista resident was driving down Bellvista Blvd approaching the roundabout with Dumbarton Drive when she spotted a car parked in the middle of the approach lane to the roundabout. The car door was wide open and the car was just sitting there blocking most of the road. The driver of the abandoned car was then spotted with camera in hand taking a snapshot of the new duck family on the grass to side of the road!
It seems wildlife is not the only thing we need to keep our eyes open for on our roads.
