Bird Song Walks & Bird ID Courses

Ever wondered what the dawn chorus sounds like? Want to identify common birds near where you live?
My walks and training sessions listed below are an ideal way of getting out early (or late), hearing the onset of spring, and learning who's who in the bird world. Get in touch if you would like to book privately.

Dawn chorus & early birdsong walks


​The dawn chorus is the most amazing sound of spring when all birds sing together. If you have never heard it before the sound will simply blow your mind! 


If a 5am or 5.30am start time is a little too early for your liking I also lead early bird walks that begin at around 7am or 8am.
