A guided walk to hear the dawn chorus at Whitwell Common will be held on 7 May starting at 6 am. This will be led by former Reepham resident Michael Meadows, who will help identify the birdsong.
Following the walk, bacon butties and hot or cold drinks will be provided, before the opening of the moth traps. These will have been set the night before and members of the Norwich Moth Group will identify the treasures found within.
The event is free, although any donations towards the cost of breakfast will be appreciated. Be prepared for an early start and wear waterproof footwear.
The walk will start from the main entrance to Whitwell Common by the old telephone box.
Directions to Whitwell Common
Leave Reepham on the Whitwell Road, past the high school on the right. Follow the road for approximately 1½ miles. After the S-bends and the high brick wall on the right, the wooden gate to the Common will appear, shortly afterwards, on the left. Take care when parking as space is limited.
If approaching from the A1067, turn down Nowhere Lane, continue past Blackwater cross country course and over Fiveways crossroads. Once over the narrow water arch, you will soon see the gate on the right-hand side.
