By popular demand...

A retreat and holiday for (potential) birdwatchers...

We’ve had a lot of visitors to the Guest House who are interested in sharing our life of prayer, and also in birdwatching.

Quite a few are just starting to be interested in birds and would like to find out more.

So we are offering a few days to combine the two. Open to beginners and experienced birdwatchers alike -
we will share our expertise, together with a mix of shared prayer, fresh air, a modicum of exercise, good food and good company.

This is a first for us and we hope it will become a firm favourite.

How could you resist?



Open to beginners and experienced birdwatchers alike.

Talks, events and trips will include:

Birdsong for beginners

The praise of creation

Birds in religious poetry

Painting birds and wildlife

Visit to Leighton Moss

Osprey watching

Walk with the Dawn Chorus

Saints and nature



Who will lead it?
