Dawn chorus walk at reserve

Have your say

EARLY risers are invited on a dawn chorus walk around the Wharncliffe Heathlands nature reserve on Sunday.

The annual event, organised by the Heathlands Trust, will be lead by local expert Andrew Hill who will identify birds singing during the walk around the woodland and heathlands.

It is expected that coal tits, willow warblers, and song thrushes alongside less common birds including tree pipits, cuckoos and flycatchers may be seen.

Anyone interested in taking part should meet at the River Don bridge on Station Road, Deepcar, on Sunday, at 4.30am.

Nature lovers should wear stout footwear and warm clothes and should take refreshments.

The walk is expected to be finished by 9am.
