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.
