The Dyke Hide

This hide was built primarily for the green woodpeckers that are often seen along the dyke. It has been built spanning the dyke and has 3 aspects to photograph from offering different lighting situations throughout the day. We have fenced off a large area along the dyke here and have planted some wildflowers and excavated a pond. It is a area of the farm that we have given back to the wildlife. During winter we feed everything from the small birds right through to the large raptors meaning a session in this hide will see constant activity from some of the species you would accosiate with farmland pasture. As with all our hides it has reflective glass for viewing and tailor made fabric snoots to shoot through. Tea and coffee facilities are supplied for your enjoyment and the hide is fully insulated. This hides portals are all at ground level giving a great angle of view yet remaining in a comfortable sitting position.
