Thanks for sharing the "hide" pic and the bird shots are first class!

I have just bought a similar one and will be trying it out soon.  It's fairly lightweight and rustle free, as well as quite waterproof too.  All I need to get is a lightweight tripod stool to sit on under it and I'll be sorted.

Even with my camo jacket and trousers on, with the hood up to break up the outline, I find I can sit quietly and have the birds come very close without determining any threat, or maybe just not seeing any human form or movement.  Be good to use the hide though to allow a bit more concealment and also protection for the camera and tripod in the weather turns a bit nasty.
