Bird Watching and wildlife

New group : Bird watching and wildlife

This group aims to take full advantage of the local Wetlands and Wildlife Trust (WWT) site at Barnes. In this converted rewilded site from earlier reservoirs there is a range of wetland features and water habitats which are home to much bird life and other animals.

The group meets at the site once a month on different days of the week. We spend time in the various hides and round the enclosures to watch and learn more about different bird species and their behaviour through the seasons from feeding, to nesting and migration. We learn about plants and other animals including invertebrates such as butterflies and dragonflies. We are able to discuss what we have seen over a drink and/or snack at the cafe at the end of each visit which is about 2 hours long, though this is flexible and depends on weather and what’s around.

We advise joining WWT rather than paying entrance fee each visit. Joining fees can be obtained on their website and be paid at the reception.
Getting there:
