Nightingale by Graham Osborne
We’re excited to be able to open some of our hides again for your visit! Here’s a summary:
Winpenny hide and Nettley’s hide will be open from Monday (17 May) from 10 am. West Mead hide and Little Hanger hide remain closed for now.
You’ll notice we’ve made a few changes to keep everyone safe:
May is a fantastic month for spotting all sorts of wonderful wildlife; you may see some of our fabulous lapwings, redshank and even avocet from the hides as they are nesting and raising families on the wetlands. But at this time of year it is the hedgerows, scrub and woodland that are really at their finest – listen out for our nightingales, blackcaps, whitethroats and more. Fattengates courtyard is one of our favourite spots to pause and listen to birdsong.
We can’t wait to see you!
