Chair’s Welcome

I am delighted as Chair of the Friends to welcome you to our website. Bushy Park and Home Park are two wonderful large green oases in the south west corner of London. Feeling wild, they are natural places with ancient histories, fascinating heritage and superb wildlife. Both are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) containing rare species. These are places to be enjoyed and conserved. Which is why the Friends exist, campaigning, supporting and protecting the parks, and enhancing visitors’ enjoyment with information, advice and guidance.

We are always pleased to receive feedback. You can contact us by clicking here.

Guided Bird Walks in the Woodland Gardens, Bushy Park

8th April, from 9.30am with the last walk at 12.30pm

Members of the Surbiton & District Bird Watching Society will be leading guided bird walks in the Woodland Gardens Bushy Park for adults and children, starting at the entrance gate from the Pheasantry car park. The walks will last for around 45 minutes each, starting hourly from 9.30am with the last walk at 12.30pm. The Woodland Garden is an ideal place to identify some of the many birds that feed and breed in the Park including Woodpeckers, Finches, Tits, Thrushes, Warblers, Ducks, and many more. This is a family event and there will be a bird quiz for children. Beginners are welcome and binoculars will be available for loan.

Please note that this is not a FBHP run event.

Why we need more Friends

With more members our voice is stronger when we campaign to protect the Parks, and with more subscription income we can do more to provide information and education about the Parks, their wildlife and their history.
