Homepage > Events > A Night with the Scopoli’s

 Date : 21st of June 2019 

Time : From 7:30pm to 10pm

Venue : Dwejra Tower

BirdLife Malta invite you to join them to learn more about the seabirds nesting in the Maltese Archipelago, their habitats, the threats that they face and what you can do to help them. Above all, to join them for a short walk along the cliffs (1km each way but on rough path) after sunset to listen to the Scopoli’s Shearwaters' calling frenzy.

For those not able to join the walk there will be the possibility to stay on the tower roof after sunset, with good chances of hearing Scopoli’s Shearwaters from here too. Incidentally Dwejra, Gozo is one of the least light-polluted areas in the Maltese Islands, making part of a Dark Sky Heritage Area, so apart from the sunset and calling shearwaters they hope to enjoy a star-filled sky!

Price & booking:
Participation is open to all, but places are limited to 25. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Participation fee is:
- €5 for adults
- €3 for children and students
To book your place and make payment please visit the event page on Birdlife website: https://birdlifemalta.org/2019/05/a-night-with-the-scopolis.

👉 Additional info:
There is plenty of parking at Dwejra but please do keep the environment in mind and attempt to carpool. The walk from the road up to the tower is short (100m) on uneven and unsurfaced paths. There are no public toilet facilities at the tower, but these can be found 300m just before the road leading to the inland sea. The tower roof is accessed by a 17th century staircase with steep and uneven stone steps. 

Please make sure you wear sturdy footwear, bring a torch (preferably with red light) and drinking water.
