photograph

Friday 1st May 2020

Join me on an early morning walk at this wonderful time of year. The start and finish point is The View, Hill Farm Marina, Stratford Road, Wootton Wawen, Warwickshire. B95 6DE.

Strolling from the marina, along the canal and through the local fields and woodland, we'll listen to the birds singing, as they lay claim on their chosen territories, but who's who?

Do not fear, Ashley will be on hand to identify all the participants in the avian orchestra. We'd expect to encounter between 30 and 40 species of bird during the morning, and a list of these will be given to everyone who has taken part as a memory of the day.

After an early start, all that fresh air and approximately an hour and half of learning the bird song, we'll have earned a hearty breakfast and there are no better providers of a good breakfast than our hosts at The View.

Tickets are limited to reduce noise and disturbance and are priced at £20 per head and includes a £6 voucher towards your breakfast, which easily covers a hot drink and a bacon butty, but by all means put it towards the full monty if you wish...

We meet at The View at 5:15am for a 5:30am start to catch the best of the bird song.

Either contact me on 07704 189835 or experiencenaturetours@gmail.com to book a place, or call The View directly on 01564 627280.
