Woodland Birds

The Woodland Birds Hides are probably the most reliable and with the most varied species list.
Most of the common woodland species will arrive, Up to 6 great spotted woodpeckers visit, nuthatch, blue, great, coal, long-tailed, and marsh tits. Other birds present are goldfinch, yellowhammer, greenfinch. Of course, with so many birds present, there is always the chance of sparrowhawk!

One of the great achievements of this set up is the Eurasian Jay which is repeatedly perched in beautiful settings, and is a regular with wildlife documentary film companies. The recent David Attenborough documentary “The Joy of Song”, included scenes filmed from these hides.

People Say

David is a rare beast; an old-school naturalist with a way with animals, and people. If it lives and breathes anywhere near his local patch, he probably knows where it is and the best way to get you in front of it.
