October half term at Dunstable Downs

Family on an autumn trail

Keep the kids occupied this half term at Dunstable Downs with our autumn bird migration trail. Open daily from Monday 25 October - Sunday 31 October 2021.

This half term, why not get involved in our autumn bird migration trail? Put on your wellies and crunch through the leaves as you help the birds find their way home.

The downs are the perfect home for birds all year round, however not all of them stay here for the entire year. The autumn migration is when we say goodbye to summer visitors such as swifts, swallows and cuckoos.

This autumn, our resident robin needs your help. Join the trail and find all eight boarding passes along the way to get his friends off in time and prepare to welcome his winter visitors. You will also receive a small craft activity to do at home to help birds over the winter.

The trail starts at the Chilterns Gateway Centre and runs from Monday 25 October to Sunday 31 October, 10am – 4pm.  The cost is £3 per child.
