Wildlife Wanders in Victoria Park

Join us for a monthly social walk to discover and learn about our local wildlife

Have you ever stopped to look and listen for the wildlife in Victoria Park? The park is alive with birds, butterflies, bees, plants and more. It’s a special place to immerse yourself in the peace and joys of nature. Each month we’ll be heading out for a couple of hours to enjoy the park’s wildlife in a relaxed group, welcoming those new to nature and more experienced folk alike. We’d love it if you’d join us.

The walks will be led by Sorrel from the Ripple Project, and the Connswater Community Greenway walk leaders. Together we’ll enjoy wandering in the fresh air and chatting with other folk who are also keen to discover the nature on our doorsteps. 

These are some of the special wildlife moments we’ve had as a group so far: 

  • Bejewelled Kingfishers perched on the Greenway
  • Buff-tailed Bumblebees whizzing through the wildflower meadow
  • Fledgling Long-tailed Tits all huddled together in a bush

What will we see this month? Join us to find out!

We’ll be heading out on the following dates, just drop Sorrel an email at sorrel.lyall@bto.org if you’d like to join us. It’s free to come along, but please do book by email.

  • Sunday 17th September 1-3pm
  • Sunday 15th October 1-3pm
  • Thursday 9th November 2-4pm
  • Saturday 9th December 1-3pm

We’ll bring along some binoculars for folk to borrow, but bring your phones and cameras to photograph the wildlife that we see. These events are suitable for wheelchair users as the inner path is flat and wide. If you have any questions about accessibility for these events please email Sorrel at sorrel.lyall@bto.org.
