A week of wonderful wildlife

Have your say

The RSPB is running Wonderful Wildlife Week, a series of family friendly wildlife events from Sunday at Top Lodge, Fineshade Wood.

Expert guides will lead a gentle stroll around the wood at 2pm on Sunday, to look for spring plants and animals. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions and test the skills of the guides.

On Tuesday and Thursday children can learn how to identify the variety of birds living in gardens and woods with Birds for Kids walks from 10.30am until midday.

A special display of binoculars will be on show in the RSPB shop on Saturday and Sunday, February 26 and 27 with the option to try before you buy on a field trail through the woods.

A talk on how birds have influenced our culture will round off Wonderful Wildlife Week on Sunday, February 27.

The cost of each event is £4 for adults and £2 for children (RSPB members half price). To book a place contact 01780 444691 or toplodge@rspb.org.uk
