If you love photographing wildlife, this is a brilliant opportunity! Join Mark for a fun week of unlimited and exclusive use of hides at a hotspot for many eastern European species, and some that are mostly lost in Britain, such as white-tailed eagles, hawfinches, goshawks, bitterns and cuckoos, and European otters. The hides offer dazzling perspectives (including under water), and the week will be jam-packed with every opportunity to practise and perfect your photography. The groups are small, and Mark will give workshops, and offer advice, help and inspiration throughout.
• Unlimited and exclusive use of two dozen wonderful hides (spring-summer workshops) and three superb hides (winter workshops).
• Hides are superbly comfortable and extremely well designed for photography - they’re not just wooden sheds!
• A hotspot for strikingly healthy bird populations and species such as cuckoos, goshawks, bitterns, European bee-eaters, turtle doves, spoonbills and water rails, as well as European otters and foxes.
• A variety of unique hides designed by multi-award-winning photographer Bence Mate – they are among the best in the world, with heating, built-in tripods and even WiFi; Bence also pioneered the integration of one-way glass into his hides so that we can maximise photographic opportunities without disturbing the wildlife.
• Both beginners and more experienced photographer will benefit from the week.
• Evenings are spent either in the hides or poring over the photos of the day and chatting about how to improve the following day.

If we can run a holiday safely, we will. But if we do have to cancel because of Covid-19, we offer you a simple choice: either a full refund (within 14 days) or the option of transferring to a future trip with The Whale Watch Company (if you transfer to the same trip the following year or the year after we’ll honour the price you originally paid).
We also strongly recommend you book flights via an agent such as Trailfinders rather than direct with an airline. And we strongly recommend that you have adequate travel insurance in place with Covid-19 protection (in case you have to cancel even if the trip is running) through a company such as Trailfinders Insurance, Campbell Irvine and P J Hayman.
We use the World Land Trust’s Carbon Balanced programme which enables travellers to offset their residual greenhouse gas emissions through the protection and restoration of carbon-rich wildlife habitats in the tropics.
