An evening walk for nightjars and glow worms

Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s Woodbridge Wildlife Group invite you to join them on an evening walk at Blaxhall Heath and Common on Friday 25 June at 9.15 pm.

Phil Smith, chair of the SWT Woodbridge Group said “As darkness falls we will wander across the heath, looking and listening for signs of the nightjar.  This fascinating bird is a summer visitor to this reserve and as well as hearing their distinctive call, I hope we will be lucky enough to catch sight of the bird.  The walk should also give the chance to see glow worms” added Mr Smith.

This walk starts from the Sandgalls car park (TM 382559) and will last for approximately one hour. Places on this walk are strictly limited and must be pre-booked by contacting Suffolk Wildlife Trust.  The cost is £5 per person and bookings can be made online through or by telephoning them on 01473 890089. The walk is suitable for children over 10. Dogs are not allowed on this walk. Participants are advised to wear sturdy footwear (as the ground may be uneven) and insect repellent is recommended.
