Warm Up for the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch.
The RSPB’s annual Big Garden Birdwatch will be held over three days, January 27/28/29, and we are holding a warm up event at The Lodge during the weekend before, to get ready for the biggest weekend in the RSPB calendar.
Wrap up snugly and join our friendly RSPB staff and volunteers to get useful tips on identifying the birds coming to the feeders, information on the Big Garden Birdwatch survey, giving nature a home and feeding your garden birds.
Join a guided walk setting off at intervals throughout the event to search for the birds that spend the winter on the reserve.
Children can help us clean our feeders and top them up with seed and suet, and children can also get mucky hands by making fat balls to take home to feed their own garden birds
There will be a binocular and telescope demonstration throughout the event.
While you are here, stock up your RSPB bird food ready for the following weekend’s surve
11 am – 2 pm
Donations welcome on the day, small charge for badge making fat balls and guided walks.
