PROTAGONIST 1: Photographer
What we seek are satisfied customers who have become friends since the first day, years of experience developing this activity, photographers around the world to visit us year after year to capture the best images of sensitive species and difficult to photograph in the wild. Two days of intensive photo from "hides" hides specially designed and installed to enjoy the best opportunities and light to photograph the birds just a few meters away. All surrounded by an intimate environment and meals, accommodation and impeccable management.
Not easy, but to get your happiness working very hard, we know that stay are wrong. Our job is to try and maximize entertainment these days so they can get the photos you are looking for. We understand the need and importance of innovation and constantly renew ourselves, our personalized attention, so your experience will never be the same in the future or any other person.
However, we also know that after an exhausting day of photography there is nothing better than a good meal to relax and to share the experiences of this stay. A time to return to feet on the ground before going to rest and dream of tomorrow's discoveries. Do not worry, they are in good hands.
Enjoy two days of intense photography of birds and a third, which performs the same activities that accompany it.
* Example of a day in a "hide" (depending on the type of bird and photographing the season):
Plains birds – in April, May and June the weather usually gets quite warm around midday, and the light is intense. Normally you’ll be in the hide for the crack of dawn, spend a few hours until approximately 10 am, and then leave the hide for some free time (scenery, plants, butterflies, lunch, siesta – whatever you feel like doing). Then you’ll return to the same or another plains hide around 5pm and stay there until the light and more photo opportunities fade.
Bonelli’s Eagle – Normally the eagles visit the site in the morning, although a dawn hide entrance is not necessary. Here a 9 am entrance is usually sufficient, and you may well be ready to leave the hide by 2 pm. If you have any time left you can try the nearby Pool Hide.
Goshawk Hide – A pre-dawn entrance is best, as Goshawks are often at the site at the crack of dawn! But there’s more… Golden Eagles, Buzzards, Marsh Harriers and Red Kites may visit the site throughout the morning and early afternoon, so make yourself comfortable!
Lammergeier – You’ll be accompanied to the hide after dawn, and you’ll spend the remainder of the day here. Once the food is delivered you will normally have a very busy time with Griffon Vultures, Lammergeiers and often one or two Black Vultures too.
