Bird Sound Safari - Forests 2024

  • Dalby Forest

In our busy lives we rarely make time to listen to the amazing sounds of nature. This immersive forest walk is a wonderful opportunity to join professional wildlife guide Richard Baines on an experience which will open your ears to the wonder of bird sounds. Learn new deep listening skills and relax amongst the trees. 

The forests of the North York Moors National Park and Forestry England are blessed with ideal conditions for experiencing and learning bird sounds. To really hear every note and bathe in this blissful sound you need two things; high-quality habitats and peaceful tranquillity.

Numbers are limited so we can keep the group relatively small to ensure a high-quality experience for everyone.

These walks are accessible for a wide variety of abilities. Each walk will use forest paths on moderately even ground with no steep gradients. The walks are approximately 2km in length.
