Where to go to photograph wildlife

I was trawling through one of the recent photo mags and came across this which I though may be of interest to others. I guess the comfort bit rules out Donna Nook .

Top ten hides where wildlife can be photographed close up and in comfort without frightening them away.
1. Gigrin Farm, Rhayader, Wales

2. Watchpoint Hide, Lee Valley, Herts

3. Speyside Wildlife, Aviemore

4. Parrinder Hide, Titchwell RSPB Reserve, Norfolk

5. Snettisham RSPB Reserve, Norfolk

6. Martin Mere WWT Reserve, Lancs

7. Barclays Hide, Slimbridge WWT Reserve, Gloucs

8. Brownsea NT Reserve, Dorset

9. Welney Observatory WWT Reserve, Cambridgeshire

10. Observatory Hide, Caerlaverock WWT Reserve, Dumfries

Pennington Flash, half way between Wigan and Leigh has several hides dotted around its edges and offers photographers some great oppotunities to get close to wildlife. There is a nice walk around the lake and it is close enough for all the Manchester boys too.
