Birds "as we go"

 

 -by visiting different habitats, key locations for target species

 

According to many bird-photographers who visited us from different countries (UK, USA, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany) it is quite amazing that several species easy to photograph at our area even without using a professional hide, especially if you have a 200mm lens or above.

Many times it is enough carefully walking around or sit patiently at a good spot or drive and use the vehicle as a hide. With this method you can visit more areas, more habitats and find more species within shorter period of time, however it is hard or rare to take such close-ups like from hides. We have excellent local knowledge regarding where to find different sought-after species with a high chance of good photography possibility. 

Please tell us what is your main interest and we will suggest the best potential period according to that.

It is also possible to select different target species from the below lists and we can tailor-make a photo-tour for you.
