Dawn Chorus Exclusive Access at Blacktoft Sands

Join our experienced guides and enjoy exclusive early morning access exploring the sights and sounds of emerging spring at Blacktoft Sands.

Spend the first hour spotting marsh harriers as they rise from the reed beds or barn owls silently hunting with our experienced spotters. Then take in the rest of the reserve along with our guide helping you to spot, hear and enjoy the plethora of wildlife along the trails and on the lagoons from our numerous hides.

New to birding, or looking to build your birding knowledge and ID skills then this is the tour for you!

Learn more about this unique wildlife rich reserve and landscape as we celebrate more than 50 years of Blacktoft, before exploring at your leisure for the rest of the day.
