Photo Tower hide

The other hide in the yard is a tower overlooking the branches of a walnut-tree where birds often perch. Several bird species have their territories around the yard and they often perch on the highest branches for their displays.

The floor of the tower hide is 7m high and roof is at 9m height. This allows viewpoint towards the birds at the level of their position and above the other trees around. As a result a well designed bouque is arranged.

Bee-eater hide

This is a permanent photo hide adjacent to a sand wall where Rollers, Bee-eaters and Starlings breed. The hide is at a secure distance from the nests with no risk for disturbing the birds, but at the same time close enough to their favourite perches where they rest, feed each other or display breeding games and mating behaviour.
\The hide faces northeast, appropriate for afternoon shooting with ideal lighting or early morning photography in slightly backlit lighting conditions. The degree of backlighting in the early morning hours is very suitable for art photography. The orientation of the hide is aimed at maximising the use of the specific light conditions, and the green trees nearby secure an appropriate photographic background.

Bee-eater hide 2

A fixed photo hide built on the sandy wall where a colony of Bee-eaters nests. The hide is at a sufficient distance from the nests of the birds so they do not worry, and at the same time they are close to favorite perches where the birds rest, feed or mating. It is often the case that the birds are copulating in front of the hide just few metres from the hide, which is very interesting for photographing.
\The orientation is in the Northwest, allowing for perfect light for the afternoon and morning photography sessions. Late afternoon hours provide soft light backlighting, which is very interesting for lovers of Bird Art photography. The purpose of the layout is to provide optimal light for most of the day, while green field is perfect clean background.
