Woodland bird hide.
My Bird Photography Hide is now available to hire during the months of October to April
Set on private land and situated in Gellilydan in the Snowdonia National Park
The Hide has room for up to three photographers and has been positioned for optimum lighting and uncluttered backgrounds.
Through the autumn and winter months we have species such as Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Nuthatch, Coal Tit, Blue Tit, Great Tit and many more of the usual woodland birds including Long Tailed Tits.
Later in the year Siskin and Lesser Redpoll appear.
As well as being able to photograph birds on natural perches at close quarters there is also a reflection pool where on calm days birds can be photographed with a beautiful reflection at the water's edge.
All the images on this page were taken from the hide.
The hide is suitable for all levels of ability and beginner's are very welcome although you will ideally need a minimum 300mm telephoto lens for decent results.
Equipment is available for hire if you want to try before you take the plunge.
I will be on site to give advice and instruction and a supply of a variety of suitable perches will be available.
Hide hire is from 9.30 am until approx. 4.00 pm
I will be on hand to show you into the hide and help set the feeders and perches into position.
Price of the hide hire is £45 a day per person.
If you feel you would like more guidance and instruction you could book the hide on a one to one workshop basis. I will spend the morning sitting in the hide with you providing you with all the help you need concerning camera settings and how to persuade the birds to perch where you want them to. You will then have some time in the afternoon on your own to practice what you have learnt. Although I will still be on hand to make sure you come away with the best possible results from your day.
Price of a one-to-one workshop is £80 per day per person.
For available dates or more information please use the contact form and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
