Discover the nocturnal wildlife of Ashdown Forest at twilight

As dusk settles on the woodland and heath, the nocturnal and shyer species become active. A chance to enjoy the setting sun and a gentle stroll in the fading light to look out for and listen to owls and bats (using a bat detector) and spot deer and foxes if we’re lucky.

Insect repellent recommended and please bring a torch.

General notes:

The walk will be on foot over varied, and occasionally hilly terrain. Participants should be prepared with suitable outdoor clothing for the weather conditions and sturdy footwear. Walks go at a gentle pace with frequent stops and may cover up to 5km in distance, so a moderate level of fitness is required.

A refreshing drink and a light snack will be served during the event. Please let us know on booking whether you have any dietary requirements.

Binoculars recommended.

Suitable for ages 14yrs +. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

No dogs.

 

Please note that we cannot guarantee the target species. Both wildlife and the British weather are unpredictable, but there’s always something to see and experience, whatever the weather.
