One of the Natural Wonders of the World

on your doorstep!

Join Rowena Quantrill from Wiltshire Ornithological Society 

for an early morning walk in Westwood, to experience the

amazing symphony of our song birds as they wake up!

Learn how to tell the Blackbird from the Song Thrush

 We should hear 20 or more different species including some of the woodland birds in Westwoods County Wildlife Site, Becky Addy Woods and Meadow

We will hear birds BIG AND SMALL such as the tiny Wren with a VERY BIGVOICE

and perhaps the soft hooting of a ghostly Owl as it goes to bed.

 Meet just before 6.00 am in Westwood Park

to see the dawn break and hear the very first Robin start the concert. 

This is the 4th Annual Westwood Dawn Walk - Dont miss it!  

Britains songbirds are declining fast - bring children and grand-children to hear

the magical dawn chorus of birdsong in the parish of Westwood

 Boost your own wellbeing and inspire the next generation!
