The partnership provides two unique opportunities to combine a relaxing paddle along the river with unique insights into the local nature from Wildlife Trust experts:
Dawn Chorus Early Morning River Paddle.
Just One Date Left—Saturday May 18th 6.15am start.
Arrive at Rushden Lakes for 6.15am, and before you leave for your canoe trip you will be taken on a Dawn Chorus walk around the nature reserve with Wildlife Trust experts helping you identify birds along the way through their early morning calls. Then, set off on your magical early morning paddle across the lake to the river, ending back at The Boathouse around 10.00am
To Book your Dawn Chorus Paddle, phone 01933 522 223,
Canoes will depart Canoe2’s base at Rushden Lakes. After a peaceful early evening paddle on the River Nene you will be met back at Rushden Lakes by your Wildlife Trust experts just as the bats are starting to come out. You’ll then be taken on a guided walk of the Nature Reserve as dusk settles. Everyone will have the opportunity to use a bat detector which picks up the ultrasonic frequencies used by bats as they hunt. The event will finish by 9.45pm
