Bird watching/
Bird photography Hides

Our bird photography hides are designed to get as close to the birds as possible. We renew our hides every year following the changes in the natural environment. Amazingly close views of Red-footed Falcon, Roller, Bee-eater, Squacco Heron, Ferruginous Duck, Garganey, Middle Spotted Woodpecker, Hawfinch and many other birds await you!

From 1 base you can reach 10 hides with cca 50 species within a 15 km radius

The hides are built for photographers, but since they leave the hides by 9-10 AM we can offer for birdwatchers the incomparable opportunity to sit in some of the hides (marked with *) that would otherwise be inaccessible for the “general public”. A few hides must be occupied before dawn in order to ensure that the birds are undisturbed and not aware of people.
