Cams Bay – Fareham Winter Wildlife Walk
Join our friendly rangers to see what wildlife we can spot around Cams Bay in Fareham.
This is a short and gentle walk with plenty of time to stop and enjoy the wonderful wildlife that can be seen around our coast over the winter time. Our rangers will be on hand to guide and show you the birds spotted along the way.
The walk is aimed at those who are new to, or less-experienced at bird watching. Families and children are welcome but under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Bring binoculars if you have them but don’t worry if you don’t, you can enjoy views of the birds through the ranger’s telescopes.
Some of the species we might see include dark-bellied brent geese, wigeon, dunlin, oystercatcher, black-tailed godwit and greenshank.
All of our walks are free, but booking is required as places are limited so please register to reserve your place on our Eventbrite page
Meeting place: On the first corner between Birdwood Grove and Fareham Creek Trail. Look out for our rangers in their blue uniform. Link to location on Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/q8GtsmxmfrXuWDDz6
Duration: The walk is around a mile long in total and will last up to 1.5 hours at a leisurely pace with regular watching stops.
Accessibility: This is an outdoor event in a public space. Some of the ground is uneven in places and can be muddy. There can also be some standing water (puddles) along the grassy foreshore and damp underfoot, therefore sensible footwear is essential.
Dogs: We welcome well behaved dogs on our walks but they must be kept on a short lead at all times.
Clothing: Please wear sturdy/sensible shoes and dress appropriately for the weather (we advise warm layers and a waterproof coat!).
