Balaba bird hide

At Balaba Nature Camp this season we have converted one of our rooms into a bird hide, overlooking a bird pool and next to the unspoiled forest. This has attracted many birds, including some more elusive birds such as a pair of Western Bluebills, and we regularly see up to twenty species in an afternoon.

Here you can see our hide and the view from the window.
