Night photography of wildlife

Our water station is located in a forest glade, where many animals
and bird species thrive.

Here you can study and photograph the wild animals
that show up at a distance of a few meters.

Chance to see wildlife during the night

A sandwich and information will be served at arrival.
After a 10 minute drive and about 100 meters by foot, the guide will show you to the hide and on your own you will begin the exciting session.
When darkness falls and the studio lights come on, there is a good chance that the badger will come, maybe even the fox, the pine marten or an owl.
It can take time, so try to sleep in turns.
During the afternoon and morning hours you have the chance to photograph small birds, woodpeckers & squirrels in natural light.
Sometimes gos hawk, buzzard and fox also shows up in day light.

You leave the hide at 08 in the morning, to enjoy our breakfast buffet.

Maybe you have been awake all night and need to rest before departure.
Welcome to use one of our guest rooms.
