Guided birdwatch walk: ‘What are we fighting for?” part of the Portsmouth Climate Festival
Book your free place via Eventbrite
Portsmouth is a vibrant coastal city of which we are all proud. Climate change and rising sea levels affect not just us and our way of life but internationally important habitats for birds too.
Join a Bird Aware Ranger for a short birdwatching stroll starting from the Milton Locks Nature Reserve in Eastney. We will amble along the shore to Milton Common where we will take in the view across Langstone Harbour. Rangers will be on hand with telescopes to show you and tell you more about the amazing migratory birds that depend on the coastal habitats around Portsmouth.
This walk is intended for anyone who loves spending time on the coast and you don’t need to know anything at all about birds. Children are welcome however the walk will be aimed at adults. Binoculars may be available for your use but if you have them please bring your own.
The event will be limited to 20 people maximum, we will operate on a first come first serve basis. Book your place via Eventbrite.
Time: 12:30 – 2:00pm
Meeting point: In front of The Thatched House Pub, Locksway Road, Portsmouth, PO4 8LT
Duration: 1.5 hours at a leisurely pace
Well behaved dogs are welcome to join but will need to be kept on a short lead for the entirety of the walk. Please remember that other dogs may also be coming along so your dog should be comfortable in these situations.
Please wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the weather (we advise a waterproof coat and waterproof trousers in case of rain).
Please contact us prior to the event if you have any medical conditions we should be aware of.
