This year’s Dawn Chorus Walk organised by the Friends of Hilly Fields will take place on Wednesday 2 April. We will meet outside the cafe on Hilly Fields at 6 am. As clocks go forward an hour this weekend, the birds should be waking up just around that time.
As in previous years, we will be extending the walk to take in the Brockley & Ladywell cemeteries. If you want to join us for that part of the walk only, please be at the Brockley Grove gate at 7 am. This is not the gate at the junction with Ivy Rd, but is on Brockley Grove just west of the bus stop and between Amyruth Rd and Henryson Rd on the other side.
What might we hear and/or see? Certainly Blackbirds, Robins, Wrens, Goldfinches, Dunnocks, Great Tits and Blue Tits; probably Long-tailed Tits, Starlings, Greenfinches, Chaffinches and Chiffchaffs; hopefully a Mistle Thrush on Hilly Fields, a Song Thrush in the cemeteries and Woodpeckers in both locations.
Do come and join us. It’s free, educational, fun, life-enhancing and good for the soul. Honest!
