Dawn Chorus weekend

Saturday 1 May and Sunday 2 May

5 am - 12 noon

Price: Donations are welcome. 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 putting on a performance, accompanied by a choir of brilliant birds as the sun rises.

Whilst we're not able to offer guided walks this year, you'll find our friendly team manning the birdsong hotspots on the reserve to help you enjoy the experience and identify 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 bird song will still be lovely. Grab a takeaway coffee and breakfast treat before heading out to explore the nature reserve.

There's no need to book, just drop in anytime from 5 am - you'll find us out on the reserve until 12 noon. Our cafe, shop and toilets will be open until 4 pm so you can continue to enjoy the trails through the afternoon.

We'd welcome donations which will support the reserve's nature conservation work and 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 hotspots, viewpoints and in our Visitor Centre facilities. Card payments only please for cafe purchases and entry charges.
