“Amazing evening watching this beautiful bird land so close. We were able to catch some fantastic images and then we had the added bonus of the badger just meters away …. Great experience and Kevin is just the nicest helpful host.”
Mike & Maggie, Wales

“Having set up Barn Owl watching at night myself, I was looking forward to visiting this Tawny Hide. What an experience! It is not often you see a Tawny, let alone in colour and moving around at very close quarters! This hide set-up is well thought out, relaxed and most importantly the Tawny’s welfare is obviously paramount.”
Simon Hurwitz, Norfolk

“Tawnys… Had a great evening (with a mate) at Kevin Robson’s set up. I don’t think anyone would be disappointed – I would highly recommend it as Kevin has vast experience and will definitely help you out with the photography side of things – especially if you have had no experience with night photography, in fact it was an amazing experience…”
Darryl Lane, Suffolk

“Kevin is probably the most dedicated and hardworking wildlife photographer I know, and he has set up an incredible situation with the tawny owls. It was an unforgettable evening watching such a secretive wild bird so relaxed and so close up, and very satisfying to make photos of it going about its business. Fantastic to hear the male and female calling to each other too. Book a session, you won’t regret it.”
Kip Loades, Photographer

“What an awesome experience. From the communication at booking, the brief before we went to the site and all the helpful tips on settings once there were first rate. Kevin obviously has a passion for delivering a great night, he is knowledgeable and answered every question thoughtfully. Once we arrived he took me through what to hopefully expect, where we should be looking / aiming, and how to get the best shots. I was very fortunate to spend two hours with the owls, they arrived and displayed just as described. The set up facilitates not only great shots but a variety of perches so I got a great array of poses, very close at times. It was also great to just sit and watch these fantastic birds communicate, interact and see them behave naturally first-hand. And we had the bonus of some badgers too! I would recommend to anyone who has a love of owls, of photography (of any level skill set) to book. Thank you Kevin.”

“I had a wonderful evening with excellent views of a Tawny Owl with great opportunities for photography and video. As a bonus a Roe Deer Buck and a Badger passed in front of the hide.”
Kevin Loader, Full Moon Images

“An outstanding opportunity and an experience I’ll never forget – seeing wild tawny owls, hearing the sounds, watching the behaviour and getting super shots. Excellent value. A massive thank you to Kevin for putting the time and effort in to provide a real wild experience. Outstanding.”
Kenny Brooks, KJB Photography

“Had a wonderful evening in Kevin’s terrific set up. It was a pleasure to take images of these iconic birds in lovely surroundings without the need of having to resort to flash and the subsequent chance of the flash recharge not keeping up with the camera shutter.  Great perches and clear views, I came away with some lovely portrait shots of these super predators.”
Howard Birley, Cambridgeshire

“I have had two visits to Kevin’s photo hide & was very impressed with the quality of the shots that I got and great perches for the owls to land on. On the second visit he had added more lights – giving a greater variety of shots, plus we had the bonus of badger and roe deer shots. The lighting is fantastic, giving me my best tawny owl captures that I have ever had. Great value and all his hard work is paying off and making it such a reliable & amazing experience.”
Colin Mayes Photography

“I recently made my second visit to Kevin Robson’s terrific Tawny Owl set up. Had another fantastic evening with a bird you would usually just hear in the dead of the night. Kevin’s attention to detail in helping you having a great experience is terrific. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone – superb.”
Kevin Carolan

“I recently had a photo session at Kevin Robson’s wildlife hide – it certainly didn’t disappoint. The close views of a wild tawny owl were sensational. As an extra treat I had very near views of badgers and found it difficult to know where to point my lens! My only problem was that the badgers came almost too close to the hide – my 500mm prime lens was ideal for the owl but a little less focal length would have been better for the badgers. Thanks once again Kevin for such a wonderful wildlife treat. I certainly expect to treat myself to another session.”
Roger Collorick

“A very enjoyable and successful evening at Kevin Robson’s Tawny Owl hide in Fen Drayton Cambridgeshire. The pair of owls were very active, the male bird posed regularly for a good hour or so, whilst the female bird made the odd close fly-by. The LED lighting is superb, enabling good quality, close portraits in natural surroundings . A badger also made a cameo appearance. Kevin is more than happy to give guidance on settings etc if required. Well recommended. Looking forward to my next visit.”
