Owls, woodpeckers and a winter’s day walk


Bedgebury’s mix of broadleaf and conifer trees creates a unique habitat that is perfect for owls and woodpeckers.

Birding enthusiast and local bird ringer, Christine George, will give an illustrated talk about British owls and woodpeckers and their habits and behaviours. She will show you how to identify these birds and the best times and places to see or hear them. The talk will be followed by a winter walk to see some of the Bedgebury birds that overwinter in the Pinetum.
