Our customised 'Fox Box' is now newly positioned in the reedbeds. This is a mobile, multi-purpose, elevated hide, enabling the effective control of predators, but also useful for wildlife recording. It is equipped with solar panels and batteries, and the hide has both internal and external visible and infa-red lighting which is used with night vision equipment which can be linked to an internal viewing screen.
With the weather turning colder, this hide allows our management team to remain 'outside' but in relative comfort whilst observing remote areas without the disturbance of an arriving vehicle.
The hide can be towed into the required position, and installed in a matter of minutes. It is a valuable addition to our management infrastructure!
