I have been working a new location now for several weeks now which features Kestrel's and Red Kites and predominate species, I have a large normal hide, but I wanted something smaller, portable and lighter that could be deployed quickly.
After doing some research I settled on the "Nitehawk", this available on Amazon, but also the manufactures do sell direct to the public, this was the way to go, delivery was made in 24 hours, great service.
Now the hide itself is a pop-up hide with an integrated chair, which when you are spending a number of hours on it, comfort is very important, and for my first six hour session in it, it was fine. Inside the hide, it has four small windows, two on each side, these are done up with zips, and can be opened as needed to provide ventilation and observation spaces.
The main window at the front opens in two places, as seen in the image above, it opens fully, a way I would not use, but when this is zipped up, their is a smaller unzippable window within it, it is a a perfect height went seated, all I did was with the aid of some self adhesive velcro, I fitted a piece of scrim netting so I could not be seen by the wildlife, but it enabled me to see out, this small modification turned a good hide into a even better one, the hide comes in its own carry bag which if needed will go on your back with the two straps, also included were pegs for holding down in strong winds. - All in all , a good and recommended product, that came with good service, you can find it here Nitehawk
Ok, now to the wildlife, on the day the Red Kites did not really come in close enough to get any decent shots, but I had the company of two Kestrels on the day.
