BEE-EATER


The loess walls of an old, abandoned brick factory provide a perfect location for photographing European Bee-eaters. It's home to about 200 pairs of Bee-eaters, a few pairs of European Rollers and Hoopoes, too. The perches for the birds are located on the top of the vertical walls. As mobile hides are used for taking pictures their position can be changed according to light directions.

Photographed species:
Bee-eater (Merops apiaster), European roller (Corracius garrulus), Eurasian hoopoe (Upupa epops), Starling (Sturnus vulgaris), Eurasian hobby (Falco subbuteo)
