A wooden bird hide that nests into its nature reserve environment. Floating on innovative screw piles, the building provides a new place for birders to look out over Purfleet’s waterlands. The building provides a number of different watching positions to encourage a variety of visitors, including the angled full height window that lets children get close to the view without disturbing the birds.
