Details

Spring is an excellent time to discover some of the birds that can be found in Bradgate Park. At this time of the year, the activity of our resident birds will be increasing as the breeding season gets underway. Our walk will take us through a variety of different habitats including some that the public do not normally have access to.

Come along to find out more about our local birds and Spring migrants, brush up on your identification skills and bird song and if we’re lucky we may even see or hear the first Cuckoo of the season!
