Birds have sharp eyes, and all these things will help you go unnoticed
01 Ghillie suit
A ghillie suit works really effectively. It breaks up your outline, helping you to melt into wooded environments.
A beanbag is invaluable for any wildlife photographer. Use it to rest a hefty lens on a rock or in a hide while you wait for your subjects.
If you’re going beyond the garden, camouflage gear is useful. Look for a jacket that’s water- and windproof, but not too bulky.
On chilly mornings a camouflage hat will work with your jacket to keep you hidden as well as keeping your head warm. If you’re after budget-friendly camo gear, you can pickup secondhand kit cheaply at army surplus shops.
There are lots of different designs and sizes of hide available. One including a fold-out chair inside is useful for longer shoots. Pick a model that’s easy to assemble and dissemble and as lightweight and portable as possible.
