Our half-day bird safaris are the perfect way to learn more about the wonderful birdlife and wild habitats found in Sussex. Each safari is aimed at beginners and gives you the chance to learn about birds and bird identification while visiting some of the best sites in Sussex at a time of year when they are at their best for birdwatching.

Filsham Reedbed is one of the largest reedbeds in Sussex and is an important stopping off point for birds on both spring and autumn migration. 

On this spring walk we’ll be looking out for our summer visitors and listening for the chatter of Reed Warblers and Sedge Warblers and the squeal of the Water Rail in the reedbeds. Marsh Harriers are now regular visitors as are Bearded Tits. We will also continue on into the Combe Valley and a newly created country park which takes us through grazing land, wetlands and new ponds and scrub areas.

No previous knowledge needed, just enthusiasm. These courses are popular. If they are fully booked please request to be placed on the waiting list as we may run more (email [email protected])

Meet in the Bulverhythe car park off the A259 at St Leonards, TN38 8DY
