Details

Join us on International Dawn Chorus Day 2018 to hear one of nature's greatest ensembles, followed by breakfast sandwich and hot drink.

We'll be talking a steady walk guided by expert staff and volunteers around Fairburn Ings, picking out early bird calls and identifying as we go. See the sun rise over the reserve, enjoy the morning's peaceful atmosphere and soak up the sounds of spring.
The walk will last approximately 2.5 - 3 hours, followed by time to eat breakfast and relax with a hot drink - choice available at booking.

Please wear layers and suitable footwear.
Suitable for wheelchairs, and will remain on paths. Walk will be slow and steady.
