Join passionate birder, David Ware, or bird-ringer, Christine George, as they lead a group around the Pinetum to see how many different species you can discover. Learn about bird habits and how to identify the different species. Different birds can be seen in the Pinetum at different times of the year, so you may wish to attend more than one of these walks.

Suitable for beginners, although more experienced birders will also enjoy the event. Not suitable for children aged under 8.  Please bring binoculars if you have them.

Each walk will start at 8.00am and finish at approximately 10.00am. 

There is no charge for this walk, but donations will be gratefully received. All the donations received from these walks will be ring-fenced for Bedgebury bird-related activities such as the costs incurred during bird-ringing sessions.  

Normal day admission to Bedgebury is payable by non-members. If attendees leave the site before 11am, this charge is just £3 per vehicle.

To book your place please phone 01580 879842 or pop into the Visitor Centre Information Office.
