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. Perches in front of the hide are the perches used regularly by the birds in their day to day live and birds are regularly sitting on them throught the day. The use of these perches gives an insight into the intimate live of birds when feeding, displaying, mating or feeding young.
The hide is facing North, appropriate for the ideal light in early morning and afternoon. Early afternoon hours provide little backlighting, which is very suitable for art photography. The purpose of the position is to provide optimum light for most of the day and the distance of the grass provide the perfect background.
