UPDATE 2016 – sorry but the events listed are for 2015 – I’ve not had time to update these yet but many of the same organisations are running Nightingale walks etc this year so check the sources or search ‘nightingales’ on twitter or visit

If you can help add to this page please let me know – thanks Chris Rose


these are events you can join, organised by Wildlife Trusts or others, to hear Nightingales

Places to listen

these are places from which Nightingales have been reported in the last year or so – mostly old woods and thickets of ‘scrub’ on commons, heathlands etc

Was that a Nightingale?

Some other birds sing at night too – this BTO video shows you which and what they sound like
