Dawn is a feast for the senses at Kingcombe. Join Su Gough for an early morning guided bird walk followed by a hearty full home-cooked breakfast.

Spring is one of the best times to experience the incredible songs of the dawn chorus.  Join us for this early morning guided walk at Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve before heading back to the centre for a hearty breakfast.
