A wonderful shot of one of my favourite birds.

Living in Birmingham (for my sins), I haven't visited Haigh Hall now for quite a while. Can anyone direct me to the hide from the entrance on Wigan Lane

Derek.Take the main path that takes you to the Hall. When you get in sight of the Hall. You will see the miniature railway on your right. Walk across the platform, and just past it, almost on it, there is a path that crosses the line to your right. About25 yds down this take another path to your left .The hide is down there .Hope you find it .

Many thanks Ron D for your directions, am next up in Wigan in December and with your permission I will duplicate these directions and "have a go". I will probably get lost but at least I have tongue in my head. Please keep the wonderful pictures coming.
