Details

This is a unique opportunity to enjoy our wonderful wildlife reserve before daybreak as we celebrate international dawn chorus day. Everyone, from people with a passing interest in wildlife to keen birders, can enjoy listening to the birds sing as the sun rises over the reed beds, lakes and ponds.

Book your tickets now for one of our guided tours at 5.00am. The walk will take you out on to the reserve as the sun comes up. Our expert guides will take you around the reserve to discover what is around, and help you identify the birds by their song. We can't guarantee exactly which birds will be singing on the day, but you're likely to hear calls and birdsong from a range of species from Cetti's warblers to lapwings!

At the end of the walk enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with breakfast before you head off out again for a day of self-guided birdwatching. Gates open at 5.00am (walk starts at 5.15am) but only ticket holders will be admitted. Please bring your own binoculars and wrap up warm.
