About the Early Bird Chorus Day Walk and Breakfast
A very special time in the nature and wildlife calendar. Come and join us for an early start to gently walk and listen to birdsong, led by an expert ornithologist, Jim Steele. We’ll return to the Whistlewood Roundhouse to sit, relax and enjoy a delicious breakfast, cooked by our very own, Katherine Parrish.

About Katherine Parrish
Katherine features a colourful palette in her vegan and vegetarian cooking, where she is always looking to serve people fresh wholesome flavours, where they are literally eating a rainbow and getting a wide range of vitamins and minerals for optimum health benefits. She finds cooking a very creative way of caring for peoples well being and loves the happiness it brings.
She has been vegetarian for nearly 40 years now, has way too many cookbooks and a long history of visiting amazing veggie restaurants and cafes and she likes to bring all that knowledge and experience to people who maybe starting out on their vegan, vegetarian (or meat reducing) journey. She sees more and more how the food she creates really does feed mind, body and soul.
This event is being hosted and run by Jim Steele and Katherine Parrish.
