Helen Sibley, the countryside officer at Thornham Walks, said : “Seeing the birds up close makes you realise how beautiful and varied their colours are, which is something you do not always appreciate from further away. It's an excellent real life experience for the young and old.”
The cost is adults £3, children £1.
