Visit Wareham, A town for all seasons!

Night Wildlife Walk with Supper

These highly anticipated walks have returned for summer 2023!

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 RSPB Arne to experience one of their most mysterious heathland inhabitants! 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 in the RSPB Arne café, followed by a 2hour guided walk starting at 8pm.
The main course will be a meat, vegetarian or vegan option, selected from their café menu by the cafe team, 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.
They can cater for dietary requirements – please let them know during the booking process.

Tickets from £29.90 for members – £33.50 for non members.
