raptor hides (permanent): Goshawk, Common Buzzard, Sparrowhawk, chances for White-tailed Eagle

Note! We cannot guarantee any of the species listed above. The success will depend on the general wildlife situation, weather and water level which is different every year. Esp. crane places accessibility depends on water level very much!

 

The photo sessions will usually take place early in the morning (ca. 4h) and in the afternoon/evening (ca. 4-6h) to take advantage of the best light and best wildlife activity.
