Some years ago, whilst sat in a hide at Denaby Ings I was being regaled with stories about the kind of antics that go on in the hides there. Trev 'sin em' Feltham described how the site was regularly used by gay men as a meeting point and how on one occasion he had to forceably remove two 'gentlemen' during a daylight session!
A search of the web in the name of research reveals that not only is this site still actively promoted amongst the gay cruising community but a number of other local birding sites are!
However modern society is more tolerant these days of such goings on and as a result this activity no longer provides these risk seekers desire. Photographic proof, received this morning, appears to suggest that they have taken their thrill seeking to another level by attempting to lure unsuspecting birders into the bushes!
