A WALK in the dark will take place this summer in Hartley Wintney to hear the chirping of rare birds.

The event will take place at the RSPB-managed Hazeley Heath, to the north of the village, from 9pm on Saturday, June 7.

The 90-minute walk should include hearing the sounds of the nocturnal nightjar, a species that hunt at dusk and dawn. To book a place, call 01252 795632.
