FOLL Dawn chorus walk

Sun 28 April 2018

4.45am - 6.15am (yes, you read that right!)

Meet in Sandford Lane car park between Woodley and Hurst, RG10 0SX

£2 per adult (children free)

Make the effort to get up early for this annual dawn chorus walk around the nature reserve, and you’ll have an experience that will stay with you for a long time. Stand in the silent darkness and be rewarded with hearing the dawn chorus rise to its wonderful crescendo. You will walk for two to three hours and may be lucky enough to not only hear the beautiful song of the nightingale but also be rewarded by a sighting.

Note this event is on a Saturday, unlike the monthly bird walks which take place from 9am on the third Sunday of each month. Meet by 4.45am in the car park on Sandford Lane, opposite the entrance to the Dinton Activity Centre.

Lavell’s Lake is in the northernmost part of Dinton Pastures Country Park and set in about 46 acres of a mixture of managed wetland habitats, including Phragmites reed beds, sedges, grass areas, coppiced scrub and hedgerows.

Lavell's Lake was designated a conservation area in 1984 and officially became a nature reserve on 7 July 1987, when the Friends of Lavells Lake (FOLL) became a registered charity (297074) with the Charity Commission.
