A bird hide is a wonderful way to get up close and observe wildlife in its natural habitat. At The Tranquil Otter, we have our own woodland area with its own bird hide that is available to our guests to use during their stay. We are a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and the RSPB regularly audits the wildlife activity in and around the Lough. Depending on the time of year, visitors to the hide can see kingfishers, curlew, dunlins, oystercatchers, turnstones, godwits, woodpeckers, to name just a few. See our latest wildlife report for a snapshot of wildlife at the Tranquil Otter. Here are a few comments and testimonials from our guests who have spent time in the bird hide.
