Listen to the sound of birds waking at dawn on a quiet morning stroll around Slapton Ley.

Enjoy the overall orchestra of sounds as well as tuning into the different calls of individual birds. Spring is a time when nature and the nature reserve is a hive of activity. Learn a few news calls of some of our resident birds as well as some that join us for the summer, whilst taking in parts of the nature reserve not normally open to the public.

Afterwards you have the option to enjoy a wholesome breakfast at the field centre (£6.00)

All children under 18yrs must be accompanied by an adult.

Tutor: Centre Staff

This course will be led by our experienced and enthusiastic tutors.
