Looking for a bird hide for your local reserve or just a way to scare away those neighbourhood moggies? Look no further than the suppliers below.

I review accessories and am happy to do this but please do not assume that sending me a freebie guarantees a good review… if I publish a review it will reflect my true feelings and experience. However, I'm not out to hurt anyone's sales so if you are unhappy with the review I won't run it, but I will not alter anything I say (unless its an error of fact).

There are separate pages for some essential birding equipment; optics (both retail and manufacturers for repairs etc., bird food, outdoor clothing and so on.

Like any other hobbyists we all like to buy kit that might prove useful… but I have heard it said of fishing that more anglers are caught by equipment than fish so we probably all have something tucked away in a drawer that we thought, at the time, was a great idea.

Gilleard Bird Hides

Website

Our company began trading in 1949 when Joe and Fred Gilleard formed a partnership to be known as Gilleard Brothers. They traded as general building contractors as well as running a small joinery workshop. In their spare time, both were keen birdwatchers, regularly visiting the reed beds at the confluence of the Trent, Ouse and Humber opposite the village of Blacktoft in Yorkshire. They were in fact members of a group who first spotted and monitored the Marsh Harriers when they began to nest there in the 1960`s, and were responsible for bringing this to the attention of the RSPB who subsequently acquired the site (now known as Blacktoft Sands) in 1973 as a nature reserve. When the warden, Andrew Grieve, arrived to begin the task of transforming this vast expanse of reed bed, into a reserve, Joe and Fred helped in any way they could. Soon, Andrew got around to wanting to put a hide on the site and went to Joe and Fred with a plan to see if they could make it and what would it cost. Fred prepared an estimate, Andrew accepted it, and Gilleard Bros made its first hide.
