A chance to explore the Forest of Dean at dusk and spot some of its shy mammals including wild boar, fallow deer and foxes. Birdlife includes mandarin ducks, song thrushes and tawny owls alongside chances of dipper, grey wagtail and kingfisher
Ed is able to offer flexible walks and wildlife experiences for individuals, couples and groups of all ages, throughout the year.
Ed lives locally in the Forest of Dean and has been working across the west, showing people wildlife, teaching birdsong and developing learning resources for schools, for the past 20 years. Ed often advises the BBC, including Springwatch, on wildlife and used to be a reporter for BBC Natural History Radio.
We walk approx 1.5 miles (2.4km) at a steady or slow pace taking in the scenery, sounds and wildlife along the way. Walking is along main forest, well surfaced tracks while we are able to venture off onto smaller paths and gentle uphill or downhill terrain.

Every season brings it's own unique variety of wildlife from wild daffodils and displaying goshawks in March, nightjars and deer in mid-summer, and crossbills and mandarin ducks in winter. Mid-March through to the end of April is a very good time for experiencing birdsong and the dawn chorus, while late February through to late April is ideal for spotting wild boar and their 'humbug' patterned young.
There are short periods when Ed might be away tour-leading or delivering other events.
