Guided walk with the Birdman of Bosham!

Join local ornithologist Hugh Baggaley for a guided walk around the harbour in Bosham to discover the remarkable array of birds found here. On the walk you will learn about the lives and habits of our different birds, as well as learning how to find and identify the different species.

Chichester Harbour is an internationally important site for wintering wetland birds. These wintering species include waders such as dunlin and curlew, ducks including wigeon, teal and red-breasted merganser, and the brent geese that form impressive flocks thousands strong.

The walks are suitable for all levels of knowledge, with no prior experience required.

About the walks

March

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 the birdsong of our resident species increasing. The remaining wintering birds are preparing for imminent migration to their breeding grounds, busily feeding, preening and gaining strength for their travels.

A minimum of three bookings is required.
