Bird song at Rodley Nature Reserve Always a favourite venue. This time the focus of our visit will be bird song. Learn the songs of reed bunting, chiffchaff and willow warbler and listen as the sand martins explore the artificial nest site at the reserve.There will be signs of spring all around with, perhaps, a few glimpses of lingering winter visitors. Price: £25 per person including refreshments. Transport available only on request for this trip This nature reserve is very local to me but I’m happy to provide a pick-up service if anyone needs it. What to expect Easy walking on flat ground. There are lots of hides and resting areas and facilities are available at the visitor centre. 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 April can be a confusing month for weather and deciding what to wear can be a nightmare in the morning! Bring plenty of layers and ensure that you’re waterproof. You may still need to wear base layers (thermal vests and leggings), fleeces and walking trousers. Please don’t wear jeans as they will wick moisture from low growing vegetation and it is impossible to dry them out. Bring a waterproof coat, over-trousers and sturdy, waterproof boots. Don’t forget your scarf, gloves and hat. 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.
