    Re: WWT Welney "photographers hide"

    If it's swans you're after, it's a bit early yet, isn't it?

      Yup, I thought I'd ask now so that we can plan it out for the later opening in the winter season! (from 1 November onwards). it's not that far from home so "nipping over" to suss it out and get some advice from the staff isn't difficult.

        Bit far for me alas. But I visited Welney earlier this year (August). Some good birds there at that time.

        Well worth a visit...

          A view of the inside of the hide, as can be seen there's shoulder height viewing ports as well as some knee height and a couple of ankle height, I'm sure as a group we could organise turns at the various levels! ???

          We would be able to use the "high chairs" from upstairs so no need to bring camping chairs, but the very low level will need something to sit/lay on to use, which dependant upon the water level could be a chair or cushion or something - there's only two of the very low level ports.



          A view out of the hide showing a sort of idea of what can be seen (12mm photo)




          A snap out of one of the square ports at knee height, as can be seen the birds don't stray far away! (12mm)



          A snap out of the higher ports (12mm)



          Another snap out of the higher port (420mm)

          EDIT:

          The photos I took came out very poorly and grainy, and I didn't notice on the day I'd left the camera on macro settings f16 or so!

                  Went to Welney a few years ago with Andy Elliott and had a great time and that was just in the standard visitor gallery/hide.

                    What a great idea and a good bit of research re hire, etc.

                    I'd be interested in attending along with my wife, who is also an Oly user.

                    Thanks Walti.

                      I'll give this a bump so it's visible on the front page for the weekend.

                          I didn't realise it was exclusively for Olympus users. So no serious bird photographers allowed.
                          It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
