Woodland Wildlife Hide – Photography Hire (Full Day)

29th June 2022 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

£100 – £160.00

Photograph some of northern England’s most intriguing wildlife, at Wild Intrigue’s purpose built hide at RSPB Haweswater.

From the iconic Red Squirrel to the elusive Great Spotted Woodpecker, the Wild Intrigue Woodland Wildlife Hide provides incredible wildlife encounters and photography opportunities. Situated in a quiet corner of the Lake District within the mossy woodlands of RSPB Haweswater, the hide is the perfect, secluded base to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.

RSPB Haweswater is not only beautiful, it is an inspiring demonstration of how nature and people can thrive together in the Lake District National Park. Through practical regeneration work, special habitats and wildlife are being reconnected, enhanced and conserved. The woodlands are alive with an impressive diversity of species, many of which visit the hide. Your booking will contribute to the continued conservation and enhancement of these important habitats, and the wildlife they support.

Developed and constructed from a photographic perspective, the hide looks out onto a beautiful woodland scene, with natural perches and a well established feeding station. Two-way mirror windows, photography ports and gimbal heads give you the best chance of capturing those perfect images, whilst luxury seats and complimentary refreshments make you feel right at home.

A variety of the highest quality seeds and nuts are always topped up in the feeding station, providing a balanced diet for wild visitors and supporting local businesses. Through the provision of high quality, varied food, the hide welcomes a rich array of species, with fluttering wings and pitter-pattering squirrel footsteps often the accompanying soundtrack.

Of course the wildlife of Haweswater is just that – wild! So it cannot be guaranteed which species will visit, or when they may appear.

Upon arrival, a Wild Intrigue guide will meet you to provide seasoned advice, and handy tips to make the most of your experience and images before walking you to the hide. Once settled in, you are welcome to enjoy the hide for yourself. Full arrival details will be provided upon booking.

Wild Intrigue are proud to support the Wild Haweswater initiative through the construction and operation of the Woodland Wildlife Hide.

*Please note the Woodland Wildlife Hide closes from 1st August until mid November, due to the excellent conservation work of RSPB Haweswater the Red Squirrels have a bountiful supply of natural food at this time of the year, which means they only visit the hide sporadically.
