My recent visit to the Barnes Wetland Centre in London also included visitis to the hides for watcghing birds. There are many of these scattered around the lakes, which are from an old clay woirkings, next to the Thames.

There is also one large hide which is multi story. These are the photos. You could try building one of these in your back garden, if it is large enough or next to countryside or parkland. Could double as a shed.

These are very interesting outdoor structures. With some creativity your garden or lands can have one or more of these, perhaps scaled down. The height is useful for observations. Green roof can be added and even vertical gardens to add to the back to nature vibe.

They are of timber building construction and are a great example of sustainable building. If you built you own out of recycled wood, so much the better, and fun to make too.
