Nightjars and owls
Thursday 14 June 2018 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Join us for an evening adventure at Staple Hill for a nightjar and owl walk and talk.
We will be guided by experts from the Somerset Ornithological Society and the British Trust for Ornithology on the search for the elusive nightjar; we will be listening out for their distinctive calls and if we are lucky we may even catch a glimpse these rarely seen birds. We will also be listening out for owls.
The evening will consist of a longer walk around Staple Hill and North Down Plantation within the Blackdown Hills. As we walk, you will be provided with a variety of information regarding nightjar and owl ecology, conservation practices and the behaviours of these fascinating birds.
Weather dependant – we will keep you updated. The location may change depending on nightjar activity.
Booking is essential.
