Join us for an early morning bird walk in the woods. We'll be looking and listening out for the many species of birds that use the woods at this time of year.

The dawn chorus is one of the most important dates in nature's calendar. Sydenham Hill Wood is a part ancient and secondary woodland with a diverse strcuture of habitats. This means the Wood is rich in biodiversity and is especially good for its bird species. 

Recent dawn chorus walks have led to encounters with kestrel, song thrush, green woodpecker, nuthatch and hunting tawny owl. Though there is much to see at this time in the morning, the main purpose of the walk will be to tune into the aural ambience of this very special landscape.

Meeting point is inside the southern entrance to Sydenham Hill Wood on Crescent Wood Road.

There is no need to book and the walk is free; but if you would like to make a contribution to London Wildlife Trust your donations are most welcome.
