Birdsong Walks with BBC's Ed Drewitt

Are you a bird lover who wants to identify the sounds of our wonderful songbirds? Do you like being up and about early? Do you love to walk? Ed Drewitt has the answer with his dawn chorus birdsong walks in the Forest of Dean - an ideal way of getting out early (or late), hearing the onset of spring, and learning who's who in the bird world.

Ed is able to offer flexible walks and wildlife experiences for individuals, couples and groups of all ages, throughout the year.

If a 5am or 5.30am start time is a little too early for your liking I also lead early bird walks that begin at around 7am or 8am. If evenings are better for you then there is a delightful evening chorus of birdsong in springtime too.

Ed lives locally in the Forest of Dean and has been working across the west, showing people wildlife, teaching birdsong and developing learning resources for schools, for the past 20 years. Ed often advises the BBC, including Springwatch, on wildlife and used to be a reporter for BBC Natural History Radio.

We walk approx 1.5 miles (2.4km) at a steady or slow pace taking in the scenery, sounds and wildlife along the way. Walking is along main forest, well surfaced tracks while we are able to venture off onto smaller paths and gentle uphill or downhill terrain.
