East Head Winter Wildlife Walk
Join us for a gentle stroll through East Head’s new winter walking route, where we’ll see salt marsh, sand dunes, and beautiful sandy foreshore. Take in the stunning scenery whilst hearing about the Rangers’ favourite birds and hopefully spotting some too!
We will be joined by Shona Jenkins, our dog specialist and Coast and Country Canines project lead. Well behaved, on-lead dogs are encouraged to join the walk, and owners will receive expert advice on how to enjoy enriching, fun and wildlife aware dog walks.
The walk is aimed at those who are new to, or less experienced at bird watching. Families and children are welcome (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult). Bring binoculars if you have them but don’t worry if you don’t as the Rangers will have their telescopes.
Meeting place: We will meet at the furthest end of the West Wittering beach car park, PO20 8AJ.
