Hengistbury Head Bird Hide opens in September

Hengistbury Head Bird Hide will be opened officially on the 4th September 2021.

The Christchurch Harbour Ornithological Group (CHOG) will be holding a Members day to offically mark the occasion. 

The hide, situated on the on Hengistbury Head Nature Reserve in Dorset, was a project started by Alison Germain, a volunteer for CHOG. The Trust was delighted to be one of the sponsors of the renovation of an old hut into a fabulous hide that should attract birders from far and wide.

Hengistbury Head forms part of the Christchurch Harbour Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and in May 1990 was declared a Local Nature Reserve. More than 300 bird species have been recorded in the area, making the reserve an important migratory point.
