Join Gary for a sensational experience in the Ultimate in Wildlife hide comfort, this hide complex has to be seen to be believed, plush throughout, heated to make your stay comfortable, carpeted and extremely comfortable.

There are 2 options for this workshop…..

4 places to stay in the hide for the day, from dawn until dusk, and then 2 can stay on overnight to photograph the nocturnal visitors.

 

The motto at Wildlife Photography Hides is ‘create the habitat and the wildlife will move in’. This has certainly been the case with this project. Just days after filling the pond they recorded 4 species of dragonfly laying eggs and to date we have had confirmed visits from Osprey, Otter, Snipe & Grey Wagtail to name only a few of the more diverse species. The hide has been developed to offer multiple species during a single session – to really get the most from this hide it is best to have 2 lenses of 300mm + so as to have one lens poised ready for the larger raptors – it is impossible to move a lens once the birds have arrived without spooking them.
