This event will involve searching through Hale Park for migrants and finches, before heading down to the estuary coastal path. We will then be moving onto Pickerings Pasture Nature Reserve later on, where the Cafe will hopefully be open!
The walk is fairly easy, however the paths in the woodland and along the coast can be slightly tricky. Benches are sporadic at Hale and there are no facilities except for the Pub.
*Please dress appropriately as it can be chilly along the coast*
This tour will take you on an exploration of the industrial history of the former railway goods yard, and how this contributed to the wildlife biodiversity of the park. This will focus particularly on the brick-making and railway operations that shaped the park that stands today.
A short walk of approximately 600 metres, but there is so much to see in this short distance.
Tea and cakes will be provided at the end of the tour.
*The lower half of the park is disabled-accessible*
Car and bike parking is available on site and there are good public transport links available.
