The continued adventures Of Jeni , Bill and Millie……..
Wildlife hides, I love them, I can sniff them out within miles and I can’t drive/walk past one without going in; probably much to the annoyance of Bill. The fact that there is one just 2 miles down the road from where we are staying is like all my wildlife Christmases at once. It’s a good one as well, this is the one all the customers keep seeing otters at, and there are plenty of seals to be seen, as well as the occasional visit from a sea eagle. The viewing windows are at varied heights, so everyone gets a fair view, which is really handy for me and my little legs. Bonus.
The hide itself is reached by a wooden boardwalk that zigzags its way through gnarled and twisted oak trees that bend to show you their leaves. Being raised above the forest floor gives you an excellent viewing platform of the many mosses and lichens that adorn the rocks scattered amongst heather, bracken and leaf litter. And shrews. I had my best common shrew encounter to date from my platform in the trees.
