There are six hides on the farm offering outstanding opportunities to watch and photograph some 30 species of farm and woodland birds that use the feeders each day.
Anglers, having paid their fishing fees may use the hides free of charge.
Non-anglers and amateur photographers wishing to use these facilities will be asked to pay a fee similar to that of a sports ticket in order to offset some of the cost of wild bird food.
