Dawn Chorus & Early Morning Bird Walks

Witness one of the forest’s special EVents followed by a well-earned breakfast
2nd May 2020


Just as the sun rises across the forest, thousands of male birds wake up and sing together as the dawn chorus, defending their nest and mate. An important daily ritual for birds, this chorus is a delight for us to hear and good for our wellbeing; it is a special spring event for anyone to witness. We’ll arrive just as it is getting light, to hear just the very first birds to begin singing before they all sing at once. Gradually, like someone turning the volume dial down on radio, the chorus will peter out as many birds begin finding food for chicks. This will allow us to divert our attention to identify individual birds that will still be singing and look for shy mammals, such as wild boar and fallow deer, before they hide away for the day to rest. Having witnessed one of the forest’s special annual events, we will head back for a well-earned breakfast spread and to warm up with roasted coffee and fresh tea.

Bring warm layers – can be very cold first thing -, boots or robust walking shoes and a torch. Walk will last approximately two hours.

Tickets are £40 each and can be purchased by calling us on 01594 833046.
