Winter bird race

Do please join us on Sunday 20 November for the second Wildspace Bird Race of the year. Back in the spring five teams, each led by an experienced birdwatcher, set out to see how many different birds they could find in the Wildspace in the course of a morning. Between them recorded a staggering 88 species! This time we’ll be looking for winter migrants – like redwings, fieldfares and ducks – but will be hoping for one or two rarities as well. We’ll start from the Environment Agency on Kiln Lane at 8am and meet up again by noon to compare notes and enjoy some hot food. All welcome, however experienced; do bring binoculars and warm and waterproof clothes.
