The Harrier Hide


The newest hide at Martin Mere Wetlands Trust in Lancashire. The other side looks out over a wide stretch of mere, or lake, which is home to many types of wildfowl.

That's a new word for me, Les: hide. It looks like a giant version of an owl/eagle made out of popsicle sticks!
Les Auld: I would like to think it was made out of local popsicle sticks but probably not, thanks for the comment.
Someone used a bit of imagination designing this Les.
Les Auld: Certainly more dramatic than the other hides on the site Bill, thanks for the comment.
Rather a wonderful structure Les.
Les Auld: And quite functional as well Ian, thanks for the comment.
Things have changed here since I used to drag the kids around, impressive shot Les.
Les Auld: And more changes are in the pipeline David, thanks for the comment.
This is about the most artistic hide I have ever seen Les, bit different than a few sticks and a bit of ragged cloth like the wildfowlers use.
Les Auld: Need to give the patrons a bit of comfort Brian, thanks for the comment.

Les Auld: Thanks Roz, it certainly has character.
What a cool design smile Well shot.
Les Auld: Definitely makes a change from the wooden shed approach, thanks for the comment.
