Walk Description:

The very popular and highy anticipated  Night Jar walk and supper is back! Led by RSPB Reserve staff exlusively for WALX at a special reduced price - this is an event not to be missed.

There’s nothing quite like the unforgettable and unmistakable ‘churring’ call of the nightjar…  Named in folklore as the goat sucker, corpse-fowl and scissor grinder – peculiar names for a bird with an unusual ‘song’ and strange nocturnal habits.

Join us to experience one of our most mysterious heathland inhabitants! This an exclusive opportunity to listen for the iconic ‘churring’, take in the sights and sounds of the reserve by night, all after a delicious meal cooked by Arne’s wonderful café team.

The evening will start from 7pm with a two-course meal provided by the RSPB Arne café, followed by a 2hour guided walk starting at 8:30pm.Both the café and garden will be available to eat your meal, including covered outside seating.The main course will be a meat, vegetarian or vegan option, selected from our café menu, featuring delicious seasonal and locally sourced produce. Followed by an award-winning Purbeck ice cream and served with a tea, filter coffee or a cold drink from a selection.

Please note that we are unable to give you a refund after MONDAY 13th JUNE for Arne meal numbers. Please email andreasalmon2@virginmedia.com if you have any dietary requirements.
