Meadow date 11/01/2021
Here’s a quick update with the progress on our new photography hide at the wildflower meadow. Like the rest of the U.K. we’re in lockdown , so progress has been slow. The hide itself is nearly finished and ready to be dismantled and then transported to the meadow . Graham has started the hide foundations , so the end is in sight, but we are still going to be delayed by current situation.
