To coincide with the beautiful full strawberry/rose moon, we are hosting a women’s* only walk at dusk around RSPB Ham Wall. This is an event created and led by women, for women. This walk provides an opportunity for those who may not feel comfortable going out in nature alone, to experience the reserve and all that it has to offer during the evening.
Join us for a 7.30pm start for a 2.5 hour guided walk around the reserve, taking in the beauty of the full moon and the reserve at dusk. As we explore the reserve, we might hear the delightful croaking song of Iberian water frogs, glimpse of the ghostly white barn owl out hunting or catch the spectacle of hundreds of dragonflies setting to roost for the night in the reeds. Your safety is highly important to us, so there will always be additional female volunteers with us.
Disclaimer: If the weather is overcast, the event will STILL GO AHEAD as planned, ticket holders will still be able to enjoy a guided dusk walk at RSPB Ham Wall.
