Dawn Chorus weekends

Saturday 24 April and Sunday 25 April

Drop in anytime from 5 am

Price: Donations are welcome and normal nature trail entry charges apply to non-members

Come along and enjoy the Dawn Chorus at Pulborough Brooks...we'll be hoping that our premier songster, the nightingale, will be joined by a choir of brilliant birds as the sun rises.

We're celebrating this wonder of nature on two 'Dawn Chorus weekends' when our team will be on hand and our facilities open early:

Saturday 24 April & Sunday 25 April

Saturday 1 May  & Sunday 2 May

Whilst we're not able to offer guided walks this year, you'll find our friendly team manning some of the birdsong hotspots on the reserve to help you enjoy the experience and identify some of the different songs. Our team will be getting started at 5 am (when the toilets will be available) and our cafe takeaway will be open from 6 am to supply teas, coffees and breakfast baps to refuel you!

If you're not too fond of early starts, you could instead opt for a 'not quite dawn chorus' when the birdsong will still be lovely. Grab a takeaway coffee and a breakfast treat before heading out to explore the nature reserve.

There's no need to book, just drop in anytime from 5 am  - we'll be out on the reserve until 12 noon, and the nature trails, cafe, shop and welcome hub will be open until 4 pm.

We'd welcome donations which support the reserve's nature conservation work and will help us to maintain and create new habitat for nightingales and other songbirds. Normal nature trail entry charges will apply to non-members.

To keep all of our staff, volunteers and visitors safe, social distancing will be in operation at our hotspots and viewpoints and in the Visitor Centre facilities.

Card payments only for cafe purchases and entry charges.
