The UK’s most common species of owl, however very rarely seen due to its nocturnal habits. Offering a truly memorable experience, this hide attracts both males and females to feed from the changeable props. Usually starting around half an hour after sunset, visits can continue right into the night. Flash is used on low power to illuminate the birds and they are also accustomed to wide-angle photography should you wish to use the camera remotely outside the hide to achieve your own unique angles.
This hide is also offered as a tuition evening with flash hire included in the price. You will be accompanied throughout your session with a member of the team who will be there to advise on settings and composition and help with set ups.
From March - May we also have canvas hides up at the nest site. This is a great photographic opportunity as the young owls begin to explore their surroundings and the adults bring in food for them.
These birds are viewable at the following hides: The Scaffold Hide and The Wired Hide
