One of the first things I did when I moved house,back in June,was reassemble my garden photography hide.It hadn’t been used for 3-4 years and just looked like a pile of firewood stacked up in my wheelbarrow.Now it’s up and hopefully will get some use through the winter.I’ve dug out a small wildlife pond in front of the hide and so it’s only a matter of time before the kingfishers,otters and ospreys move in…..I wish! Ollie and me have sat in the hide for about an hour so far and already he’s complaining about the lack of comforts.No sheepskin rugs and why can’t I rip the sitting room radiator off the wall and pipe all the heating out to the hide.And no,he’s not a spoiled brat….He says.
Anyway I digress.Here’s a few more images from the back garden.
This cock pheasant came in to drink from the pond while we were in the hide.
