Join us to celebrate the magic of the birdsong at Boconnoc.

On the evening of Monday 20 June and the morning of the 21 June we will be hosting our nature walks series with ecologist and bird specialist, Robbie Phillips. 

This is the time that no-one is around and you are simply immersed in nature on the estate. Creep out of bed in the early hours to join us for the dawn chorus, or wind down your day, with a stroll through the woods as the sun sets.

From farmland birds to woodland specialists, Robbie will bring you into the world of breeding birds at Boconnoc. Learn how to identify a range of species from song and calls as well as understanding their behaviours and how they use varying habitats to feed and nest in. Robbie is working on projects supporting bird conservation across the south west including swifts, pied flycatchers and curlews. For anything we hear during the walk, Robbie will help you learn what it is and how to distinguish its songs from others.

The walk will end at the outdoor kitchen by the water-powered sawmill, located in a beautiful, secluded spot on the estate. Join us there for a steaming cup of tea or coffee, with sausages made on a farm at Boconnoc, in a freshly baked bun (vegetarian option available). 

After the evening walk there will be other drinks available that can be paid for with cash. 

We will finish with a tractor trailer ride back to the Stable yard.

On arrival please park outside the Stable yard where you will be met. 

Ticket price £20 including refreshments
