-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.
