Join bird experts Jenny and Nick from the British Trust for Ornithology for a family birdwatching walk around Lynford Arboretum and Lakes. BTO staff Jenny Donelan and Nick Moran will lead this 2-hour guided birdwatching walk, and help you to spot and identify birds around Lynford Arboretum. This is a great opportunity for families to try birdwatching, with no prior experience needed. We hope to see some finches and thrushes that will have just arrived from Scandinavia to spend the winter here, and perhaps even spy a roosting owl!
Lynford Arboretum is beautiful area of forest in the heart of the Brecks, noted for its variety of bird life, autumn fungi, and tranquillity. View the Arboretum in full colour as the leaves turn for autumn!
This event is hosted by the The Brecks Fen Edge and Rivers Landscape Partnership Scheme (BFER), in collaboration with the British Trust for Ornithology. BFER is made possible by the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund, with thanks to players of the National Lottery.
