About the walks
*Exclusively for BSC Members and their guests.
Join Hugh for a guided walk around the Harbour at Bosham to discover the remarkable array of birds found here. On the walk you will learn how to find and identify different species, as well as learn about their lives and habits. Chichester Harbour is an internationally important site for wintering wetland birds including waders, ducks and geese. Many migratory birds also stop off here on their travels, owing to the position on the south coast. The walk is suitable for all levels of knowledge, and no prior experience is required.Wear sensible outdoor clothing and bring a pair of binoculars. Meeting point will be on the Sailing Club terrace.
