Situated on a lowland tidal stream this hide offers some incredible close up and open views of this bird which is renowned for its shyness and skulking behaviour. This hide has been built in a shallow side stream at a very low level. It offers a clean and distant backdrop which allows the photographer to obtain some breathe taking images of this elusive bird. This hide only accommodates one person and due to the light you will only get 2 or 3 hours at optimum light levels. This is more than enough time to get plenty of shots so the small window is not a problem. This hide is situated right beside the kingfisher hide and any one that books it can use the kingfisher hide for the remainder of the day at no extra charge.
As this hide is situated on a tidal estuary the tide will reach this hide on a daily basis. When booking I will make you aware of the time this will take place and I will advise accordingly.
Water level is most important at this hide as if the river rises even 6 inches then low level hide is not an option as the water becomes too deep for the birds to wade and also for you to lie in. For this reason it is advisable when booking to leave it as late as possible so that we can assess the conditions and make judgement from there.
