Sunday 8th April - Heron Watch (11am-4pm)

As per previous years, the Friends of Kelsey Park, in conjunction with RSPB Bromley, will be holding its annual Heron Watch event.
At this event, a number of volunteers will be on hand with equipment to let you view the herons on 'Heron Island'.

There will be two viewing areas; one staffed by Friends of Kelsey Park volunteers, the other staffed by RSPB Bromley volunteers. Both offer excellent views of the herons, from slightly differing angles.

There is no cost for the event, and telescopes and binoculars will be available for both adults and children to use. Bring your own camera for some great photos!

We will be staffing the viewing areas between 11:00 and 16:00 on Sunday 8th April 2018. Be sure to come along!

11th April - Bat Walk (7:30pm-10pm) - SOLD OUT!

This is your chance to walk around the park, after dusk, with an expert bat guide, for an opportunity to see some of Kelsey Park's bat species.

Before the walk, our expert guide will give a short introduction to bats, the types of bats that are in the park, and what you can expect that evening. Bat detectors will be issued to the group, and the walk will begin.

The walk will begin at 19:45, but please turn up for around 19:30 to ensure you are with us, as we cannot wait for you, and the gates are locked behind us! The walk will finish at around 21:30 after we have walked around the park.

Please bring suitable footwear, suitable clothing (it can get cold in the park!) and a torch.

PLEASE NOTE: As with all wildlife / nature, nothing is guaranteed! If there are no bat sightings you won’t receive a refund! However, we’ve always seen plenty on previous walks. In the event of bad weather, the walk will be cancelled or rescheduled. Tickets are non-refundable.

Tickets for the evening are limited (50 people) and previous events have been oversubscribed. So please buy your tickets early.

Tickets are available from the Information Centre at weekends for the following prices:
