Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, Wiltshire

4.1
#4 of 11 in Parks in Saint James Parish
Experience the magic of feeding a hummingbird from your hand at Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, a unique feeding station set in the tropical gardens of a rustic cottage. Wait patiently for Jamaican mango hummingbirds, vervain hummingbirds and many other bird species that come and say hello. On arrival, grab a nectar filled bottle and the hummingbirds, who have become very accustomed to humans, will flock to you for a feed. Other species in the sanctuary include Jamaican tody, loggerhead kingbird and Jamaican orioles. For an extra fee, a guide will show you further into the lush forest to catch of glimpse of these winged inhabitants.

  • We had heard about this experience from friends who had done the same tour a few years ago. It was only a 30 minutes drive from our hotel to the Sanctuary. The road up to the sanctuary is quite bumpy ...  more »

  • The place is nice and serene, many birds to see as they feed. I was of the impression though that I would be given a tour but the fellow there just sat down mostly. If you are charging money at least offer some kind of service. The place has potential, but needs someone with a vision. Beautiful friendly birds!
  • Amazing experience. Take your time and calm down and the birds will come
  • Bumpy road getting there .... but having magnificent beautifully coloured hummingbirds sitting on your finger is a sublime experience
  • An extremely bumpy road and the fellow who owns the place is a real rip- off merchant . He hardly maneges to convert American dollars into Jamaican ones . At the same time the place is tranquil, full of twitting birds . I did enjoy watching finches. My advice :1. if you have to take a taxi or you are not able to share it ,it is not worth going. I agree that added taxi fare makes your trip too expensive if you think what you get in return. 2 . if you are a group of adults , find better idea to spend your time. One adult is enough to surpervise kids , otherwise , it would cost you a fortune .I do recommend it for children but be aware and go in the morning We arrived at 2 pm and the hummingbirds were not so exited about the offered syrupat all. I was lucky to take just one kid with me , so I was watching her . It would be very disappointing if I had both because there were only few birds
  • Feeding the humming birds was an awesome experience and the view was amazing.
