Hodbarrow

Millom School's "Its your Tern Project" has certainly added a welcome splash of colour to the RSPB Hodbarrow hide whose solid dark concrete has a tendancy to look more like a nuclear bunker than a place to  watch birds.
Panels designed and painted by pupils at Millom School and installed in 2013, the colours are still vibrant.

What a great place! Are you a bird watcher?? Want to take a photo from the inside? Or from the other side?? :-) Thanks for your recent visit to my site.

They are beautiful murals. A great idea to brighten up the hide.
Inside it still looks a bit bare, we do have a white board for noting sightings but thats it!

I suppose all eyes are on the windows inside looking out Andrew although I do always enjoy a browse through the white board listing.
