Dawn Chorus Nature Walk - led by Naturalist Steve Abbott
06:30 - 08:00 on Sunday 14th May

The walk will move around some of the key habitats in Ufford and will offer a great opportunity to learn a variety of calls and songs at this prime time in the breeding year

Please meet at the Community Hall Car Park for a prompt set-off at 06:30. The walk will include the paths through the woods, roadways and a field or two.

In order to ensure we actually hear the birds and hear Steve talking about them we need to limit this event to 18 people – please contact on Jane Cochrane on or 07879447140 to book your space.
