Quarry Bank Dawn Chorus Walks

Join our ranger team for an early morning guided walk to learn about the birds living at Quarry Bank and hear the cacophony of sound as they wake for the day.

  • Booking essential

The popular series of Dawn Chorus walks is returning to Quarry Bank this spring.

This guided walk will start at 5am in the Mill Yard and take a circular route through the Southern Woods, along the top farm fields and back along the River Bollin.

Walks are taking place daily on Saturday 27 April, Sunday 28 and Monday 29 April.

Our expert team will tell you about the variety of birds who call Quarry Bank their home, and will point out their individual calls as they wake for the day.

The walk will finish at approximately 8am in the Mill Yard with a bacon or vegan sausage bap and a regular drink.

Tickets are £15 per person.

Due to the early morning time of the walk we will not be able to provide add-ons or alternative food choices.
