Nightjars of the forest


Bedgebury forest is home to many special birds but the enchanting nightjar is considered to be one of the best. We hope to share with you the mesmerising ‘churring’ of this bird and perhaps a wing-clap or two on this walk with ecologist and bird specialist, Simon Ginnaw.  We may also see ‘roding’ woodcock or hear tawny owls.

Ticket price: £12 per person. The walk will start at 8.45pm and last approximately 2 hours.
