Join us bright and early for a bird ringing demonstration with the Reserve Officers Martin and Lloyd.

You will join them at Fieldfare hide where they will be netting, ringing and releasing a variety of birds. A great opportunity to get a close up look at some familiar species, as well as some you won't see in your own garden.

The demonstration will be followed by a talk about bird ringing, how and why it is done over a hot drink and some biscuits.

Meet at the Anglian Water Birdwatching Centre at 07:30. Booking Essential.
