This is a fixed on a sand bank where Hoopoe and Bee-eaters and Starlings breed. The hide is hidden at the base of the bushes that are on the edge of the sand wall. In front of it there is a few of perches that birds often use for rest, feed each other or display breeding games and mating behaviour. The hide is at a secure distance from the nests with no risk for disturbing the birds.
