The Pond Hide

The motto we go by here at Wildlife Photography Hides is ‘create the habitat and the wildlife will move in’. This has certainly been the case with this project. Just days after filling the pond we recorded 4 species of dragonfly laying eggs and to date we have had confirmed visits from Osprey, Otter, Snipe & Grey Wagtail to name only a few of the more diverse species.

Hide Rules

  • If you need to leave the hide for any reason please phone ahead and someone will come and escort you. This is done to protect the hide from irreparable damage that can happen should the wildlife see you leave
  • Some of our hides are on a privately owned lake complex. Please do not leave the hide during your session and wander around as it is part of the agreement from the land owners that all guest will be escorted on and off the site
  • Our other hides are on pasture and livestock graze the fields. We cannot stress enough how important it is to shut gates behind you and check that they have latched shut
  • Please don’t leave the hide during the session and change the setup - phone ahead and we will come and help should there be a problem
  • Please leave the hide as you found it and take all litter home with you.
