The Dawn Chorus Walk is being held at Wharncliffe Heathlands Reserve on Sunday 31st May.

A dawn chorus walk on Wharncliffe Heathland Local Nature Reserve will be a great way to start to learn how to spot birds by their songs.

Meet up at the River Don bridge on Station Road, Deepcar (post code S36 2SQ) at 4.30am on Sunday 31st May and finish about 8.00am.

The walk will be led by Andrew Hill of the Wharncliffe Heathlands Trust (WHT) who will identify birds seen and heard during the walk around the woodland and heathland

Less common species that could be heard, and may be seen, include spotted and pied flycatchers, garden warbler, redstart and tree pipit.  WHT hope that early risers will hear many common species such as coal tits, willow warblers, cuckoos and song thrushes.

Please wear stout footwear and bring warm clothes and refreshments.
