It will take place from 2pm to 4pm, meeting at Darwin Gardens car park, Wells Road.

A guided walk the following day, from 9am to 11am, will go up to the Twelve Apostles stone circle, looking for moorland birds.

The walk is rated as moderate to strenuous. The meeting point is White Wells car park.

Improvements to footpaths are taking place on Tuesday May 13 and May 20, setting off from Darwin Gardens car park.
