June is the height of the bird breeding season, meaning that birds will be most active before the late summer when many species begin to moult after a tiring few months of raising young and defending territories.
We are likely to see the staple woodland species of wren, robin, blackbird, woodpigeon, and to hear migrant blackcap and chiffchaff, as well as nuthatch and stock dove. There is always an outside chance of kestrel, sparrowhawk and our resident tawny owl.
Please wear suitable footwear for a woodland with rugged paths, steps and gentle inclines. If there is prolonged heavy rain, thunderstorms or high winds the walk will be cancelled.
This is a free walk, a minimum donation of £2 towards our work is recommended
