Wildlife Cam Campaign – Hengistbury Head

February 26, 2019

Live streaming

We are currently live streaming from our cameras across Hengistbury Head, Dorset.

From early spring 2020, follow the Herons twenty metres aloft the highest of Scots Pines – the egg laying, hatching, feeding and fledging of the young. In the background look out for the beautiful but secretive Little Egret, a small white heron with a black bill and a bright yellow naked face.

As the season progresses, probably from mid-May, we hope to bring you nesting Blue Tits with their frenzied feeding of up to 8 young, followed by our Kestrels which in 2019 brought us some stunning images of this ferocious predator.

We have the potential to stream from our Tawny Owl cam too – depending on whether there is any activity this year. Watch this space. Out of season we are planning, for the first time to bring you live pictures from Christchurch Harbour and from one of our bird feeding stations.

While you're enjoying the live stream, you may have to press the play button again after 10 minutes to keep watching the action.

Keeping cameras working in the hostile environment of gales, driving rain and salty sea spray is expensive. This year we are raising funds to add more live streams for 2021. The costs of streaming are £1,000 a year and we'd also like to put a new camera in next year too, we rely upon donations to make this happen.

So please join us in donating towards our Wildlife Cam Campaign. You can donate here online, or in person at the Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre via a cash or contactless donation.

Thank you!
