Pool Bridge Photography Hides - The place to photograph Yorkshire wildlife!


Pool Bridge Farm in Yorkshire has always been a haven for wildlife but since joining the Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) scheme in 2010 and turning a large area of arable land into meadowland the wildlife on the farm has flourished and diversified beyond all recognition.  With Pool Bridge Farm ajoining Heslington Tilmire, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), many of the species found on there can now also be found at Pool Bridge Farm.

Some of the Yorkshire wildlife species that can be regularly seen at Pool Bridge Farm include; Kestrel, Green Woodpecker, Brown Hare, Fallow and Roe Deer (these live in the wood on the farm), Barn Owl, Tawny Owl, Little Owl, Short-Eared Owl (in winter only), Buzzard, Kingfisher, Water Vole, Great Crested Grebe. We have even photographed an Osprey at Pool Bridge!

We have two nocturnal hides, one for the Barn Owls and one for the Tawny Owls that are feeding every night. If you are interested in photographing any of our species please send an e-mail to info@poolbridge.co.uk or call Steve on 07872 107 284.
