Not quite the Dawn Chorus at RSPB Arne

Arne Nature Reserve Heath Water


Booking essential

One of the most evocative signs of spring is the dawn chorus. As the new day breaks we are greeted by the sound of birdsong; establishing their territory, attracting potential partners or calling amongst their flocks. This reaches a fantastic crescendo as the sun rises.

Join our wildlife guides on a 2-hour early morning walk, which is a little later than the break of dawn, at 7:00am.  
The walk will start from the information hut in the RSPB Arne car park. This walk finishes off at 9:00am - with full English breakfast at the RSPB Arne Café – and a chance to chat further about what we have seen and heard.
