We are fortunate to live very near an RSPB site and as members can pop along for an hour or so whenever we want. I love the garden hide, lots of branches, rocks and logs for birds to land on. I do sometimes have a problem with the very serious photographers who wish to give advice to all and sundry. I just like to be left on my own to take photos in my own style and whilst your advice is well meant it isn’t always helpful!
