Bird walk at Crossness Nature Reserve May 1st

Ralph and Brenda Todd will be leading a midweek bird walk on Thursday 1st May at Crossness Nature Reserve.

An excellent opportunity to attend one of Ralph and Brenda’s excellent bird walks and see a splendid site.

“It should be a good one as we have some great birds on site at the moment, some rather exciting breeding, and lots of migrants. The sedge warblers and reed warblers are back, as are the whitethroats and tons of blackcaps, not to mention plovers, skylarks and all sorts, so it should be a rather fruitful event. Lots of butterflies around at the moment too, and bumblebees, so it’s a lovely time to be out on the reserve. There was a little egret on the scrape today too.

We kick off at 9am at the Protected Area, and the Norman Road gates will be open for vehicular access.”
