Details

The Big Garden Birdwatch 2018 will take place on 27-29 January and in the weeks leading up to it we’ll be doing all we can to help you get prepared.

We’ll be setting up bird feeders on the balcony and surrounding area to attract and bring birds closer whilst you enjoy your coffee and cake. Staff and volunteers will be on hand (with binoculars too!) to help identify the garden birds so you can head home and do the same in your own back garden.

You can also follow the free 'Beaks and Feet' Big Garden Birdwatch Quiz out on the reserve with your children (sheets are available to pick up in the centre). Don't forget to bring back your completed quiz to claim your sticker!
