Dawn Chorus Walk, Spring Song at Corfe

It goes without saying that one of the true joys in life is birdsong in spring. Our May field trip sees us visiting Challow hill, a site near Corfe Castle that plays host to many spring migrants that will have arrived back but also still be passing through. So join us as we listen out for spring migrants in the valleys that surround Corfe Castle and teach you how to tell each songster apart. We’ll be making our way up to the top of Rollington Hill and Challow Hill to give us stunning views over the village of Corfe and the castle its self as well as the Poole Harbour basin to the south. 

Possible species – Blackcap, Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, Garden Warbler, Whinchat, Yellowhammer, Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler, Cuckoo.

We will be meeting in the small NT car park on Sandy Hill lane, Corfe. There is a height restriction bar for this car park so no bus’s allowed! If you’re coming from Wareham, head into Corfe Village and on the first sharp right hand bend, you’ll see a road (almost hidden) on your left called Sandy Hill Lane. Drive up the lane for about 50m and the car park is on your left hand side. If you’re coming from Swanage, drive through Corfe Village and as you’re about to exit the village you’ll see Sandy Hill Lane in front of you.
