Event description
Start your morning immersed in the melodic birdsong of RSPB Haweswater under the specialist expertise of our Site Warden.

About this Event

Join RSPB Haweswater Warden and expert birder, Spike Webb, to discover the dawn chorus of an impressive array of birds in the woodlands, hedgerows and edges surrounding Naddle Farm.

Haweswater's woodlands provide long-standing nesting and foraging potential for species such as Pied Flycatcher, Redstart, Green Woodpecker, Buzzard, Nuthatch, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Treecreeper, and an array of other songbirds and birds of prey. The yaffling of Green Woodpeckers is always a great way to start the day!

Being the first on the reserve you will have the opportunity to look out for Haweswater's other wildlife, including Red Squirrels, Roe Deer, Red Deer and Badgers too.

This year we would encourage you to bring a flask and a breakfast snack, which you can enjoy at the end of the walk whilst learning more about Spike's impressive 15+ years experience working on our beautiful reserve.

You are welcome to bring your own binoculars, and you may also wish to bring a camera.
