Welcome from Finland, too - the home of Osprey Foundatin.

Fifty kilometres from my house they have popular osprey pond. Every time I visit the place, there are international bird tourists around.

Hi Peter,
I just realised you might think my spelling of council is a bit strange, its a regional accent thing, nothing else.
Cheers Gordon.

To be honest its wasn't that - it was just the thought of inappropriate development i.e. not having permission - not sure whether this is an issue on this site is it? (sorry...I have a Council background!)

Hi Peter,
Not a problem for building the hide, my brother works in the planning department, so i knew long before i even started digging it out.
Osprey back in town, had one fly right over my head this afternoon.
Thanks Gordon.
