Barry Porter Memorial Hide now open for use.

We are pleased to announce that we are now in a position to be able to offer the vulture hide for use.
There will be an official relaunch in March now, as a pre-arranged capture and tagging programme will occupy the whole of February.

We can't express our gratitude enough to the contractor that has given us this stunning hide, which is way beyond our wildest dreams.

Existing Trogons members wishing to use the hide should contact Andy Ruffle please.
Otherwise, non-members can find rates and booking details here.


  1. Congrats to all those who worked to rebuild the hide - you all deserve a medal! I have no doubt this facility will offer hundreds of enjoyable hours to many keen birders over the years and Barry would have been very chuffed with your efforts! This will become one of the jewels in our avi-tourism crown in this region and tourism salute you! Kind regards - Howard Kelly USCT

      Thanks so much for your comments Howard. Without USCT's support and total faith in our project from the outset though, we wouldn't be where we are today. So many thanks. Andy Ruffle, Project Co-ordinator.
