Dawn Chorus Walk


Location: Meet at Lavell's Lake car park on Sandford Lane at 05:25 for a 5:30am start

DAWN CHORUS: Yes, it does say a 5.30 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 pre sunrise twilight and be rewarded with hearing the dawn chorus rise to its wonderful crescendo. We will meander slowly between hides for two to three hours and we will be rewarded with the fabulous songs of Song Thrush, Blackbird, Robin, Wren, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Garden, Sedge & Reed Warblers, hopefully the Cuckoo won’t be shy, nor will the Kingfisher.

So much more will be seen as we progress through our walk – we advise people wear stout shoes or walking boots, bring their own drink and bear in mind it can still be quite cold at dawn, so wear appropriate layers based on the weather forecast.

We also hope to see Sand & House Martins, Swallows, Swifts, waders such as Oystercatcher, Common Sandpiper and Little-ringed Plover  if passage is kind.

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.
