About the event

During the day, you will learn how to identify visiting bird populations as well as resident birds in the varied habitats of this reserve. Renowned local birder, Paul Holness, will reveal some of the wonderful birds, such as shoveler, lapwing, goosander, bittern and goldeneye that enjoy the lakes as the weather grows cooler.

Suitable for beginners/less experienced. Please bring binoculars if you have them although some will be available to borrow from the centre. Please bring a packed lunch and wear suitable warm, weatherproof clothing and stout footwear. It may be muddy.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided and are included in the price, but as much of the time will be spent out on the Reserve, please bring any extra drinks and snacks you may require when away from the Centre.
