Nightjars at RSPB Farnham Heath

25th July 2023, 21:00 - 22:30


Nightjars at RSPB Farnham Heath


Tuesday 25 July

9pm – 10.30pm




Join us for a guided walk led by Mark Crisp, Warden at RSPB Farnham Heath to hear and hopefully see the incredible Nightjar, one of our Surrey Hills heathland bird species.

RSPB Farnham Heath was once home to a gloomy conifer plantation. It has now been transformed into a beautiful heathland, with views across the Surrey Hills, abundant with wildlife that includes roe deer, crossbills, nightjars, woodcocks and tree pipits.

The heather is also at its best during the summer months of July and August with a variety of shades of violet and purple.

The walk will most likely be around 1-1.5 hours, finishing with a tea, coffee and hot chocolate station.

No dogs on this event please.

Please dress appropriately for being outdoors at this time of year and wear suitable footwear (closed shoes) for sandy, uneven terrain.

As this is an evening walk you may wish to bring a small torch/head torch with you, but you will be advised when it is suitable to use this to avoid disturbing wildlife.  If you have them, please bring a pair of binoculars.

You may also wish to bring an extra layer as it may get colder once the sun has gone down.

The terrain will be moderate as we’ll be going slightly uphill to the viewpoint.

We suggest that this event is not suitable for those with mobility challenges unless they have a tramper or a powerful electric wheelchair adapted for outdoor use.

Toilets are available at the Rural Life Museum which is adjacent to the reserve.

Cost to Members: £6
Cost to Non-members: £10
Surrey Hills Conservation Volunteers ticket £6
The price includes tea/coffee/hot chocolate. Please let us know in the comments box if you require alternative milks

We will also be making a small donation to the RSPB.
