One year on and our new permanent wildlife base has proved to be an invaluable resource. we are now about to start phase 2 , more replanting to create a mini woodland and a larger mirror pond.
Here’s the full story
Phase one of the new Hide has finally come to an end and the hide is now ready for use. A few little finishing touches to be made but all the doors / windows open . The internal cladding and insulation are finished and we now have light , heating and a kettle installed. Next on the list , flooring and two new chairs. The exterior has now been completely stained and is looking good. This hide is definitely going to be a comfortable place to watch and film wildlife no matter what the good old British weather throws at us.
Next on the list is the replanting of the northern fence , the new ponds and general landscape before we turn our attention to the main event , restoring the wildflower meadow to it’s former glory. Today we had another new visitor to the meadow , a hunting kestrel who hovered directly above the hide for a good five minutes, before landing in a tree directly behind the hide.
