£10

Event Navigation

If you’re feeling stuck at home and fancy some fresh air, why not escape to Cogges Manor Farm for a couple of hours for a peaceful wander around the grounds as you learn to identify different wildlife – led by Katherine Holmes, an experienced local ecologist.

During the gentle, slow-paced walk, you will have the opportunity to open your eyes and ears to the wild birds and other wildlife species at Cogges, and Katherine will provide hints and tips along the way to help you learn to identify them. Each walk will finish with an opportunity to try your hand at a simple nature related craft activity and connect with like-minded people.

Feel free to bring your own packed lunch to eat ‘on the go’, or alternatively lunch can be purchased at the café. The walk will be entirely outdoors, primarily on unsurfaced, uneven paths, so please wear appropriate shoes! This is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Refunds not available once booked.

Katherine has worked as an ecologist and wildlife conservationist for the last 15 years, and is passionate about sharing her knowledge of the natural world, and helping people reconnect with nature. She has a particular interest in birds, and believes that some knowledge of birdsong can add an extra level of appreciation and enjoyment to spending time in nature, without the need to be weighed down by binoculars.
