Owls and Nightingales Birdy Walk and Talk

Nightingale

That certain night
The night we met
There was magic abroad in the air
There were angels dining at the Ritz
And a nightingale sang in Berkeley square
(Congrats to Dame Vera Lynn... who recently turned 100)

Friday 28 April 8.15pm-9.30pm: Owls and nightingales.

Three species of owl are found in and around the village, and amazingly, in recent years, a pair of nightingales — a species which has become incredibly rare. No promises, but we hope to hear or see some of these, and enjoy the evening bird chorus too. Meet at Eastfield.

Come to this evening walk, which is free and led by local ecologist Catherine Mowat. If you like, you could bring a smart phone along to record the songs and help you learn them. There's no need to book, just turn up, but if you would like to know more, contact Catherine on 01458 250655.
