Location and installation year:
This hide is in the Debrecen Great Wood reserve which is a superb old oak forest. It was installed in October 2010. We have a drinking pool in front of the hide which is operating from early April to November. It is about 1.8 km from our other drinking station and located in a small clearing.

It is about 120 meter gentle walk to the hide.

Size and style:
It is 180 cm wide, 250 cm long and 140 cm high. It has 230 cm by 45 cm photo-through windows. It is comforatble for three photographers.

Comfort and accessories:
- Three chairs with back support
- Shelf
- Ventilators against the steaming up of the glass window

This hide can be entered any time. It is possible to leave the hide any time but has to spend minimum 5 hours in a row once entered.

Recommended Photo Equipment:
The distance to the end of the drinking pool where most birds appear is 5.5 meter from the hide. All sort of lenses recommended but a 300 mm is the best. Also take a 500mm if possible, especially for woodpeckers in winter. Occasionally some species perch closer to the hide so a zoom lens can be useful too.
