Photohides, 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.
