Are you a Nature Reserve Novice?

Would you like a little direction?

Do you fancy a walk with like-minded people?

Whatever your experience or motivation come along on a Tuesday morning stroll to discover some amazing wildlife.

We aim to have small intimate groups of around 6 people to give us time to explore as many habitats as possible.

Your guide, Jeff Davies, has a wealth of wildlife experience and knowledge which will make your morning’s walk both enjoyable and extremely informative.

  • During the WINTER the walks will concentrate on bird ID hopefully noting the abundant wildfowl & waders together with other winter visitors such as Bittern, Great White Egret, Lesser Redpoll, Siskin & Smew.
  • In SPRING you will concentrate on the songs & calls of our domestic breeding birds and arriving migrants – hopefully including Nightingale, Spotted Flycatcher, Avocet, Water Rails and up to ten species of Warbler.
  • In SUMMER you will continue to observe the birdlife but additionally you will find and identify local Butterflies, Dragonflies and study the diverse Flora & Fauna on the Nature Reserve.
  • During AUTUMN there will be a multitude of wildlife to observe including rare waders, Hobby’s feeding young, Osprey preparing for migration, Marsh Harrier, Barn Owls and arriving Fieldfare & Redwings.


Jeff has been passionately interested in wildlife for over 40 years and has been involved in survey work for the BTO and the RSPB. A regular volunteer on the Rutland Water Nature Reserve habitat team, with the Osprey Project and as an Ambassador for the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust – Jeff will ensure your morning is very well spent.
