Warm Up for the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch.

About

The RSPB's annual Big Garden Birdwatch will be held over three days, (25th -27th January), and we are holding a warm up event at The Lodge 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 get mucky hands by making fat balls to take home to feed their own garden birds.

While you are here, stock up your RSPB bird food ready for the following weekend's survey and take a look at our range of binoculars and telescopes.

A range of hot drinks and snacks are available from the RSPB shop.

Donations welcome on the day for children's activities and guided walks.

Booking not required.
