The Floating Hide

Our Floating hide MKI is more like a boat than the conventional floating hide that requires waders or getting wet. Its design is compact and so may not suit everyone however with a little practice and patience this hide is set to mark the first of its kind in the UK. We are currently working on a bigger more comfortable vessel to suit all photographers and is due to be complete some time in the spring. The main species the hide has been constructed for is Great Crested Grebe however there has been some other great species photographed from the hide such as Tufted ducks, Mute Swans, and coots. The thing with this hide is you never know what might turn up to feed on the lake and winter sessions we have good numbers of goldeneye over wintering.
