Friday Breakfast Club visits RSPB Fairburn Ings this week after starting the day with a bacon butty. In November, numbers of winter wildfowl are growing and visiting thrush flock numbers should rising. We may also be able to get our first winter waxwing. Using the Cut Road entrance to Fairburn also gives us a great chance of seeing the resident kingfishers too. We’ll also focus on wren and robin song. Price £15 per person including refreshments. Transport Transport is available leaving at 8:00am from the Moor Allerton Centre on the Leeds outer ring road. Otherwise meet for optional breakfast at 9am or in Fairburn village at 9:50am by arrangement. What to expect Easy walking on made up paths. Be prepared for muddy ground. There is a short, steep hill at the end of the main path. This end of Fairburn has 3 hides. Toilets and cafe are available at the main RSPB Fairburn Ings visitor centre a short drive away, but there are plenty of ‘natural’ facilities. Refreshments are available at the end of the walk. Note for beginners If you’re struggling to see birds through your binoculars, you’ll learn quickly how to use them with speed and accuracy and discover some useful techniques for watching birds in the field. You’ll also learn how to identify birds by their songs and calls.Please don’t buy binoculars especially for the trip as these can be provided on request. You’ll be able to get advice about binoculars, what to buy and the best places to make a purchase. What to wear Wear plenty of layers and waterproof clothing. Please don’t wear jeans as they will wick moisture from low growing vegetation. Bring a waterproof coat, over-trousers and sturdy, waterproof boots. Scarf, gloves and hat are essential and it’s a good idea to carry spare gloves.
