This is a 2.5 - 3 hour wildlife walk experience in Streatley, along a route that was well populated last year with both Little and Tawny Owls and I'm glad to say they are back again this year.
To hear the call of the different owls around us as we walk is really magical, and often we are lucky enough to see the Little Owls as they hunt the fields along a section of the walk.
This is a 90 minute session, and and early start as our local Kingfishers are hunting from dawn!
Goring & Streatley is situated on an incredible section of the River Thames, and we know we have several pairs of resident kingfishers, who last year were very active with us and successfully raised 15 young over three clutches. So sightings can be frequent some days - if you know where to look!
Whilst this 3 mile circular route includes at the start a short climb not for the faint hearted, the unrivalled panoramic of Goring Gap at the top is well worth the effort.

We will pass through beautiful woodland copses, a small meadow and a thriving chalk stream full of wildlife at every turn. A Kingfisher is often seen along this stretch.
Want a wildlife experience without lots of people around? This amazing wildlife-filled location is set in private land, and so your walk group will be the only ones on site - plus the wildlife! You follow a scenic 4 mile woodland route with an experienced wildlife guide, and get away from all the stresses of daily life.
This experience on private land with Steve "The Bird Whisperer - our 5 star wildlife walk guide will help you hear, identify and see a range of bird & animal life which can be found in this rich countryside environment here in The Chilterns.
Along this route we regularly see Roe Deer, Muntjac Deer, Rabbits and Partridge... and if we are lucky, one of the gorgeous foxes seen here regularly basking in the sunshine. We have also had a close encounter with mink!
