To celebrate National Bird Week this Guided Bird Walk is FREE. Join a small group on a 90 minute guided walk in Bronte to enjoy a morning of bird watching. Please stay afterwards, if you can, to enjoy a coffee together at one of the local cafés!
Guided Bird Walk includes:
- Guidance on how to identify local bird species by sight and sound
- Practice spotting birds and using binoculars
- Binoculars will be provided for the walk
- You will get a local bird list to take home
All experience levels welcome!
Places are limited so booking is essential.
WHAT TO BRING
- Water bottle
- Reusable cup (for a coffee from one of the many local cafes afterwards!)
- Weather sensible clothing and sun protection
- Backpack or bag – you will want your hands free to use the binoculars
- Sturdy, comfortable footwear
We will walk slowly and stop often to admire our feathered friends. Please be mindful there are sections with stairs and uneven ground and there may not be somewhere to sit when we stop, so come prepared to be on you feet for the duration.
This guided walk is suitable for people aged 12 and over. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. An adult accompanying children only needs to book a place if they want their own binoculars.
A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR GUIDE
My name is Jade and I have been birdwatching around the Easter Suburbs and beyond for over 6 years. For me bird watching is a great way for to connect with nature everyday. I feel grounded and more connected to my home when I can put names to the birds and other wildlife around me. And when you see a new bird, it’s a lot of fun! Bird watching also opened me to all these opportunities to care for them; bush care, native gardening, and supporting wildlife corridors. This gave me purpose and fulfilment. I want to share this sense of wonder, connection and care, with my fellow nature lovers out there. Please reach out to me if you have any questions – email@example.com
When: Friday 20th October – 7 am – Bronte Gully
