Join Ranger Julie from Bird Aware Solent on a walk around Lepe Country Park.

We will discover the often hidden world of overwintering waders ducks & geese who must not only survive winter here but ensure they stock up on enough food to complete long migrations back to northern breeding grounds. This walk is intended for anyone who loves spending time on the coast. You do not need to know anything at all about birds. Children welcome although the program is designed for adults. Well behaved dogs on leads welcome. Binoculars will be provided. No booking required, but the event does have limited spaces. Duration: 1 to 1.5 hours at a leisurely pace.

Meet outside The Lookout at 10am.

Ranger Julie from Bird Aware Solent will also be inviting you to join her in the bird hide from 12pm for an hour. See amazing marsh specialist birds up close through a spotting scope camera or borrow one of our pairs of binoculars. Learn about what the birds get up to in the winter. Do you have a nature question? Bring it along! This is a great activity for kids, especially on a rainy day! All ages welcome.
