Wildlife Walks

There is always wildlife to be seen at Portbury Wharf Nature Reserve (PWNR) but autumn and spring are particularly good times of the year with the arrival of many birds from far off countries; and if you are really lucky you may see one of our roe deer or even a water vole.

Sometimes it can be hard to identify what you see without expert guidance so we can offer just that, whether you are part of a group who is planning their own walk on the reserve or you would like to join a walk organised by the Friends of Portbury Wharf Nature Reserve.
