We are delighted to announce more Hide Sessions!
Please Note: As its during the winter months, there will be not be any catering facilities on these dates, apart from Sunday 16th February 2020.
These sessions will give you access to one of our Woodland Hides for 2 hours where you will be able to see for yourself the diversity of bird life at Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome. At this time of year the woodland is teaming with a variety of birds; Goldfinch, Blue Tit, Coal Tit, Woodpeckers, Nuthatch, Chaffinch, to name but a few. Sometimes a Sparrow Hawk swoops in for a visit too!
Your 2 hours will fly by as you witness the volume of wildlife and their antics from the security of our Hide.
The session will comprise of approx. 30 minute meet/greet in the Airmens mess, during which your Guide will give a brief introduction, and then you will be accompanied to the Hide. You will be assisted in the Hide by your Guide for up to 2 hours, giving you ample time to see the birds and take photographs. This will be followed by 30 minute debrief/feedback in the Airmen’s Mess.
Arrival 10am on site
Visitors are requested to wear appropriate clothing, such as muted colours, stout footwear, long sleeved shirts/jackets to minimise disturbing the wildlife. The Hide is reached over uneven, wet ground during the winter months, so stout footwear and winter clothing is strongly recommended. We regret the Hide is not accessible to people with a mobility impairment.
