Book early for Crossness spring bird walk!

With the Spring migration getting underway there will be a Bird Walk at Crossness at 9am on Sunday 24th April. PLACES ARE LIMITED, SO BOOK NOW!

Ralph and Brenda Todd will be leading the walk for us, and we are proposing to start at the nature reserve and then head south for a walk through the Crossness Southern Marsh to look for passerines, before heading back to the nature reserve for lunch. Please expect to be on your feet for 3 to 4 hours, and there is a small stile to climb as we come back along the southern boundary path from Belvedere Road.

If you are interested in attending this event, please book early, because we are restricting attendee numbers to a maximum of 20 to ensure a more enjoyable experience. There are many new members who might wish to take advantage of this introduction to the site. It’s free, and a picnic-style lunch is provided in the bird hide at the end of the walk. We will meet at the Protected Area of the nature reserve, and I will be opening the Norman Road gates (Norman Road North, Belvedere, DA17 6JY – gates half way up on the left, past the green shed) for vehicular access at 9am.

PLEASE DO BOOK YOUR PLACE via email/phone/text – thank you. Kind regards Karen Karen Sutton – Biodiversity Team Manager Thames Water Crossness Nature Reserve Crossness Sewage Treatment Works, Belvedere Road, Abbey Wood London SE2 9AQ Tel: 07747 643958. Email:
