About the event

Join us for a guided walk around our largest nature reserve looking at the visiting winter birds. Steve Holmes has been recording on the reserve for over 10 years and as a great general naturalist can switch effortlessly from birds to many insect genera and even the occasional plant!

These walks are fantastic for anyone wanting to get in to birding or the experts among you.

Expect to walk 3-5 km over uneven ground, some times this walk does run over slightly.
