Multiple sessions available from 2 Jun 2020 to 28 Jul 2020

This new partnership event between Birds of Poole Harbour and the Purbeck National Trust Team will see us explore the stunning and scenic Slepe Heath which is nestled to the north of Hartland Moor and Corfe Castle. The southern heaths of Poole Harbour are a stronghold for Nightjar and Slepe Heath is no exception. This mysterious bird and its quirky lifestyle add to it’s endearing personality where at dusk its haunting ‘churr’ rings out across the heathland. Join us to learn out about and see some of the areas important heathland birdlife whilst taking in stunning views out across the Wareham Channel. The grand finale will be listening to (and hopefully watching) Nightjar as they become active at dusk, before they then head out in to the darkness. 

Not only that, the money raised from these walk goes straight into a Poole Harbour/Purbeck Farmland Bird Project in partnership with the Purbeck NT team which seeks to help one of the most threatened and struggling groups of birds in the country.

25 spaces per walk
