Meet at Monkton Combe Churchyard

Winter Bird Walk

A group of people in the background at a church to explore winter birds, with a pretty clump of snowdrops in the foreground.

Detail

We will look at the birds in the churchyard and its vicinity, and then walk along the road to Tucking Mill to see what is on the bird feeders and what is on the lake. Unless the weather is bad, we should see all of the common winter species, with a good chance of Marsh Tit, Little Grebe and Cormorant. We saw around 30 species last year.

We will probably walk for around 1 mile in total, and we will need to be careful of cars along the narrow – but quiet – road.

If the event of bad weather, we will need to cancel or postpone.
