Bird Hide Design Guide
Purpose of the Guidelines
The following guidelines are intended to assist the various organisations that may be considering additional provision for bird viewing. While some of the background information will be familiar to those directly concerned with the management of sections of the coast, this has been included in order to provide a comprehensive context for consultants working on their behalf. It is hoped that the guidelines will encourage a fresh approach to the design of birdwatching facilities based on an understanding of the special qualities of the coastal landscape, of its traditional buildings, and of practical techniques for avoiding intrusion.
