Hide And Seek

January 1, 2023 at 5:05 pm

A happy new year to all our readers with this weeks blog photo of one of my hides in a neighbours garden last month.This is what a proper hide should look like and I always have a good laugh at the hides that some of our television experts use – they would blow away in a force3 Hebridean wind!!!
I have spent thousands of hours in my hides over the last 44years and have filmed the nests of such mouthwatering subjects as Golden Eagle, Peregrine, Hen Harrier(62pairs!), Merlin, Gyr Falcon, Great Northern Diver, Short Eared and Long Eared Owls and best of all Snowy Owls in Alaska!!
Last months garden subject was a male Bullfinch eating pink Rowan berries – an easy subject compared to the other birds listed but just as enjoyable.  www.facebook.com/gordonyateswildlife
