There is currently no more bird walks planned for the rest of the year. We will keep you updated as soon as the Friends of St Ives send us their calendar. In the mean time, please visit our page about Bingley St Ives Estate.

Friends of St Ives Bingley LogoHere are some exciting guided bird walks organised in Bingley St Ives Estate this Spring by the Friends of St Ives, one of the local organisations linked to us. They are all led by Mark Doveston, a local naturalist and bird expert.

Morning walks

Planned to introduce non-birders to birds in St.Ives Estate, when the birds are at their best, the walks start at 7.00am at the gateway to Coppice Pond and follow the footpath clockwise around the estate ending full circle back at the pond.

The walks can take up to 3 hours depending upon weather and the birds. They take place in all weathers so please come ready for the conditions with suitable footwear.
