Guided walk with the Birdman of Bosham!
Local Ornithologist Hugh Baggaley has had a keen interest in wildlife and sciences all his life. While studying Biochemistry at University College London (UCL) he started doing bird surveys and guided walks for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). Hugh now undertakes bird surveys for the RSPB, the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), Chichester Harbour Conservancy and Chichester District Council. He also leads some of the Chichester Harbour Conservancy birdwatching solar boat tours. In 2018 Hugh was presented with the Eileen Savill award from the Manhood Wildlife and Heritage Group, for contributions to the conservation and celebration of the wildlife of the Manhood Peninsula.
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. **Extension works are now in progress** Meeting point will be outside of the main gates next to the meadow.
- £25 per person
At the turn of the seasons there is a change in the cast of birds around the harbour. Spring is building with summer migrants such as chiffchaffs and wheatears beginning to arrive, and birdsong of our resident species increasing. The remaining wintering birds are busy preparing for imminent migration to their breeding grounds. Please book below.
A minimum of three bookings is required. There will be no refunds after 5th March.
