Buzzard hide - Details


According to the weather we feed the Buzzards between November and February. It works well only when the temperature is below 5C. 10-15 Buzzards all at once come to feed daily, when the land is covered with snow and the temperature is below zero. Some of the birds often spend at least half an hour with feeding and don't tolerate the presents of each other. The most hectic time is the afternoon, when the birds spend more time with fighting and defending the meet than with feeding. The hide is placed under the ground, and approachable from the back without disturbing the birds. The distance between the meet and hide can be varied up to 8 meters. The usual distance is 25 meter for the food, which is good for photographing action with a 500 mm lens in full-frame. The meet is unvisible as it is placed in a hole. We only can guarantee successful session, if the temperature keeps under 0C during the day.
