As the sun rises why not join us for a very special wildlife experience to hear the magical dawn chorus at Newport Wetlands. This spectacle of sound will include not only the more familiar garden birds but also some of our star species. Listen out for a booming bittern or calling cuckoo and hear the difference between a reed warbler and reed bunting… it is well worth the early start.
This is an opportunity to visit the reserve before anyone else arrives and soak up the sound of spring birdsong. Our guides will be on hand to help with spotting wildlife along this exclusive walk. What better way to celebrate international dawn chorus day.
We will meet at 5:00am to make sure we don’t miss a thing. The walk should take about 2 hours and toilets will be available before and after the walk. Please wear warm clothing and suitable footwear. It is well worth bringing binoculars if you have them alternatively we will have some for hire on the day. Dogs are not permitted on this walk.
When we get back you can warm up with a hot drink and have a chance to pose any questions to our expert guides.
