Heron’s nest

Group 5

 Live webcam

We are live streaming our heron’s nests from Hengistbury Head where we’ve previously seen baby heron’s hatch and fledge. We were hoping for the same this year, but nature is so unpredictable and we don’t think there’s an egg there this year. You may still catch some of the beautiful heron’s wandering around the nest.

Our wildlife camera in Hengistbury Head’s wildlife garden is capturing some blue tits feeding hungrily from our bird feeding table.

Heron time lapse

March to May 2020 Video timelapse

Watch a time lapse of a heron chick hatching, feeding and growing into a mature bird in 2019 from the nest aloft the Scots Pines of Hengistbury Head. The heron’s now fledged and will be spending its time in Christchurch Harbour and along the Stour Valley. What a fantastic experience this was to witness the maturing of this fascinating creature.

Kestrels nesting

2018 Video timelapse

Our Kestrels nest high in the tops of the tallest pine trees on Hengistbury Head. We had 5 eggs laid at the end of April 2020 which hatched and the chicks fledged in the middle of June. The male bird does most of the hunting until the chicks are bigger and only then will the female risk leaving the nest to hunt close by. Voles are their favourite prey but they will search out small birds, woodmice, shrews, insects and earthworms. The Kestrel has amazing eyesight and can spot a beetle 50m from its perch!
