February Bird Walk


Location: Meet at Lavell's Lake car park on Sandford Lane at 09.00

This walk will not take place if we are still in Tier 4 lockdown, in theory we can lead one person which can be done if someone really wants to go for a bird walk.

If we do come out of Tier 4 lockdown we have a booking system (see and do still request a donation of £1.00 either on-line or at the walk.

Join us for a walk, guided by an expert local birder, around the lakes, woods and hides of the park. Whatever your level of expertise you’ll be welcome. £1 donation, children free. Car park charges apply.

Meet 08:55 for 09:00 departure from Lavell’s car park opposite the DAC car park on Sandford Lane, the walk lasts approximately 3 hours. There are no toilets or facilities in the area of the park we visit so do allow for this and bring your own refreshments.

February often feels like the last month of winter, we expect to see Little Egret, Little Grebe and all the winter wildfowl such as Shoveler, Teal, Wigeon, Gadwall and Pochard and even our Ferruginous Duck may even still be around. Fieldfare and Redwing will be about, as will Siskins and hopefully some Lesser Redpoll. Hardy residents like Great Crested Grebe and Kingfisher will already be pairing up and the first Shelduck may be about, as might our first Redshank. If it is a sunny day, we might see Little Owl and Skylarks singing as they rise higher and higher, with so much blossom and bulbs already appearing, we should see more colour this February than ever before.
