Sparrowhawk Hide

Cost: £70 per person

Featured on Autumnwatch 2015 this has to be one of the best hides in the UK. Chris Packham was blown away with this place and raved all through the series about Mad Max and described this Sparrowhawk not only as the best bird on the planet as a species, but the best bird in the world as an individual! Now available all year round as I have the Sparrowhawk visiting several times almost every day. This woodland hide offers a host of species with constant activity. Birds such as Jay, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Nuthatch, Siskin, Goldfinch and Lesser Redpoll are regular visitors along with several other species of finches and Tits. We also get regular visits from Buzzards and Roe Deer. The day starts at 730am and finishes when you please, but it is advised to stay until the light fades.

Available: All Year Round
Max Participants: 3 Persons
Lenses: 300mm to 500mm

Recommended Equipment
We recommend a lens of 500mm and a tripod or beanbag. Zoom lenses give excellent flexibility and are highly recommended. Please make sure you bring fully charged batteries and plenty of memory cards.

Clothing
Comfort is essential to making sure you get the most out of your time here therefore warm comfortable clothing is advised. Please do not wear any materials that are likely to create any noise. The walk to the main site can get a little muddy so good walking boots or wellingtons are recommended. Please have plenty of layers on in the colder months.

Facilities
Due to the location of the hide, there are no toilets on site.
