Join us in the field for an introduction to birding in partnership with Livability Holton Lee. Suitable for beginners, improvers and those looking to learn more about bird identification, behaviour and conservation.

We've partnered with our friends at Livability Holton Lee who are permitting us access to the private site, an underwatched mosaic of saltmarsh, heathland and mixed woodland that offers stunning views out across the Wareham Channel. Situated to the north of Poole Harbour, the 350-acre site is the home of Livability, an organisation Birds of Poole Harbour have been working closely with for several years.

The walks will encompass the full suite of habitats available, with a focus on target species such as Hobby, Dartford Warbler and Stonechat. The well-situated viewpoint provides a perfect setting to survey the Wareham Channel for hunting Ospreys, while the gull islands to the south offer a great opportunity to get to grips with the separation of the closely-related Black-headed and Mediterranean Gulls. As well as identification tips and fieldcraft, the walks will touch on topics such as bird habitats, behaviours and adaptations with the aim of honing in and unlocking your birding abilities.

Donations welcome. Our team love to run free guided walks across Poole Harbour, by making a donation to the charity you will help us to keep these events free of charge and accessible to all.
