Eider Courtship Walk

A walk to watch the eider ducks trying to woo their mates

Location: Barsea area

An opportunity to view some of the Bay’s most beautiful birds, eider ducks, as they engage in their seasonal courtship rituals. Led by South Lakes Ecology, the group will walk approximately 2 miles around the Levens estuary, discovering more about the species and watching the drakes trying to woo their potential mates. We’ll also talk about the effects of disturbance by humans and dogs on these wonderful birds and others like them. Bring boots or wellies and binoculars or a scope if you have them. Please come dressed for the weather and bring a drink and snack.

Dogs are welcome but must be on leads at all times during the walk.

Tickets: £4 per person. Pre-booking essential. Book your place here. Full details about meeting point will be sent to participants shortly before the event.
