Dawn Chorus 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 or find group bookings through the Tudor Farmhouse Hotel.

Dawn Chorus or Early Bird 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 8am ish.

The next dawn chorus events will be available in spring 2022, yet to be confirmed. However, if you like to book a private early bird walk this autumn please get in touch direct.
