Dawn Chorus Walk


Location: Meet at Lavell's Lake car park on Sandford Lane at 05:15

DAWN CHORUS: Yes, it does say a 5.15 am start. Make the effort to get up early and you’ll have an experience that will stay with you for a long time. Stand in the silent darkness and be rewarded with hearing the dawn chorus rise to its wonderful crescendo. We will walk for two to three hours and if our luck holds we will not only hear the beautiful song of the nightingale but also be rewarded by a sighting.

We advise people wear stout shoes or walking boots, bring their own drink and bear in mind it can still be quite cool at dawn, so wear appropriate layers based on the weather forecast.

We hope to hear Nightingale, Cuckoo, 6 species of warbler, see Sand & House Martins, Swallows, Swifts, waders such as Oystercatcher, Common Sandpiper, others if we are lucky.

Please be aware DPCS charges for parking, but free lay-by spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Note this event is on a Saturday.
