The Tower

This year on the reserve we want to observe how well the gulls are feeding their young. They’ve started hatching, as you can see:

Aww. A bit soggy there, as the parent birds will take flight and attack you if you go too near. To watch them closely without disturbing them we need a hide, but as this is a large, flat, open marsh, we wouldn’t see much from just a hide. We need a tower!

I didn’t include “having planks of wood hoyed at me” in the risk assessment

Luckily one of our volunteers is a scaffolder

I might name it “Castle Black” because I’ve been watching too much Game of Thrones

Or “The Deathtrap”
