During the spring and early summer months the Wilderness Reserve estate is alive with birdsong. One for the early risers, guests are invited to listen to the cacophony of birdsong from 5am, or as early as 4am in the height of summer, that accompanies the sunrise. As the dawn chorus fades you will be guided by a Wilderness Reserve Ranger who will explain how to identify each songster. Sibton Park lake, part of Kim Wilkie’s revival of this Arcadian landscape, is alive with butterflies and dragonflies throughout the summer months.
