This tried and tested hide is hugely popular, which is not surprising for such an iconic, beautiful and dynamic bird prized by wildlife photographers.
Your distance from camera to Kingfisher perch is approximately 2-4 m, although this is adjustable. On occasion kingfishers have landed within a meter of the hide and on one occasion a bird was in front of the hide utilising various perches for an unbroken 88 minutes, in fact the only thing that broke his visit was another kingfisher!
Generally, this hide is for perching kingfisher shots with a clean even-toned background. The active ‘whacking’ fish shot is also very common.
This hide is not for diving kingfishers, although this can be arranged if requested and the photographer has the equipment. Equipment for the diving shot including 3 flash units, infra-red trigger beam and the 5 tripods used, can be rented separately, however, this shot can only be taught as an exclusive 1-to-1 day.
You will need a lens of around 400 to 500 mm for this subject, although a 300 mm could be sufficient on a crop-frame sensor.
