This week’s Friday breakfast walk will explore Fairburn Ings from the Cut Road entrance in the Village of Fairburn. This gives us a great chance of seeing the resident kingfishers as well as fabulous views of the main bay. Here we’ll look for winter wildfowl including smew, goosander, spinning shoveler flocks and goldeneye. The woodland walks will also provide plenty of opportunity to practise bird songs and calls. Price £15 per person including refreshments. Transport Transport is available leaving at 08:00 from outside Argos/Habitat at the Moor Allerton Centre on the Leeds outer ring road. Otherwise meet for optional breakfast at 09:00 at Samuel Valentines in Allerton Bywater or in Fairburn village at 09:50 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. 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 (including base layers) and waterproof outer clothing including coat, over-trousers and sturdy waterproof boots. Please don’t wear jeans as they will wick moisture from low growing vegetation. Scarf, hat and gloves are essential and it’s a good idea to pack extra gloves and socks. Join me on more trips and learn about each bird’s story whether it migrates or stays in the UK the time of year when it can be seen the types of habitats preferred by different species how birds adapt to their environment.
