Join the Sydenham Hill Wood Conservation Officer for a guided bird walk.  You will be listening to and observing the array of bird species present at the Wood.

June is the height of the bird breeding season, meaning that birds will be most active before the later summer reccesses when many species begin to moult after a tiring few months of raising young and defending territories.

You are likely to see the staple woodland species of wren, robin, blackbird, woodpigeon, and to hear migrant blackcap and chiffchaff, as well as nuthatch and stock dove. There is always an outside chance of kestrel, sparrowhawk and our resident tawny owl.

Please wear suitable footwear for a woodland with rugged paths, steps and gentle inclines. If there is prolonged heavy rain, thunderstorms or high winds the walk will be cancelled.

This is a free walk and all are welcome. Donations to London Wildlife Trust are welcome.
