How many bird species can be seen around Ely in a single morning? If you want to find out for yourself, or simply fancy a guided birdwatching walk around the fantastic wildlife areas right on our doorstep, then why not join the Ely Wildspace Bird Race on Saturday 7 May? We are meeting at 6am sharp at Ely Sailing Club where we will divide up into small teams, each of which will be led by an experienced local birdwatcher. The teams will then set off and walk all around the Wildspace trying to see and hear as many bird species as possible. We will return to the Sailing Club at around 11 to compare notes, discover the winning team and enjoy a barbecue in front of Roswell Pit! The event is free and everyone is welcome. Please bring binoculars (if you have them), warm and waterproof clothing and plenty of food and drink.
