El Caseto hide

This long-standing hide was built around a 30-year-old former hunting watering site. It was converted into a wildlife photography hide over 10 years ago and therefore is a favoured watering spot for the area's birdlife and nocturnal mammals. It is located in a private orchard adjacent to a gorge and surrounded by Mediterranean forest.

 

This watering site has two hides for two photographers each. One hide is designed for morning photography and the other for the afternoons.
