New bird hide at The Olde House

Introducing our brand new purpose-built bird hide. Built 8ft above the ground, the new bird hide overlooks the wetlands and is a perfect viewing point for watching the birds without causing disruption.

We have flooded 15 acres of our farmland to create wetlands as part of the Walmsley Bird Sanctuary to protect the Amble Marshes SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).

The wooden hide is wheelchair accessible and has six windows which can be latched open, including two lower windows for children and wheelchair users.

With its mild climate, Cornwall is the perfect spot for birds including waders, wildfowl and raptors. The wetlands encourage over 40 different species and are visited by rare migrating birds throughout the winter including the American Bittern and the Glossy Ibis, usually found in the warmer climates of Asia.
