Photography Hides Spain

Since a few years ago, photography hides in Spain have become very popular for photographers and conservationists. Birdwatching Spain, in partnership with local agents, offers photography hides in Valencia and Alicante provinces. They are designed specifically for key birds such as Little Bittern, Marsh Harrier, Glossy Ibis, Purple Swamp-hen, Squacco Heron, Ring Ouzel, Cirl Bunting, Greater Flamingo and mammals: Genets and Mouflons. Apart from the hides commented in the Photography tour, we have one photography hide in Pego Marshes, another one in Sierra Aitana (Costa Blanca) which performs wonderfully for wintering Brambling and resident open forest birds. In Alcoi we have the Mouflons and Griffon Vultures and finally the Genet in Bicorp .
