Wildlife walk – Sunday 14 June -2pm

Wildlife walk – Sunday 14 June

 

Meet outside Sydenham station (on the Station Approach side) at 2pm. The guided walk will go through Sydenham Wells Park and then go on to explore the Hillcrest Estate Woodland and the Dulwich and Sydenham Hill woods. We’ll see a lake and a nature reserve, both ends of a disused rail tunnel, birds, beasts and flowers and some beautiful woodland – parts of which are remnants of the Great North Wood which once covered much of the area.

The walk will last approx 2.5 hours, covers approx 3 miles and contains quite a few ups and downs. In other words, it will be great exercise! Hope to see you there…

Please wear sturdy footwear and clothing suitable for the conditions. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times. This walk is free, donations are welcome. Booking is not necessary.

In recent weeks buzzards have been seen circling over the Wood and in the locale, with more activity from tawny owls, kestrels and an array of migrant warblers, resident woodpeckers and tuneful thrushes.
