Have you ever come face to face with a wild bird?

Thornham Walks is offering people the chance to get some close up views of woodland birds at a bird-ringing event organised with help from a licensed bird ringer, Sid Batty.

The event on Sunday, March 9, starts 10am and runs until noon and will take place at the bird hide, which is frequented by blue tits, great tits, marsh tits, coal tits, chaffinches, woodpeckers, robins, nuthatches, blackbirds, sparrow hawks plus many more wild birds.

The morning will provide an opportunity to take close up pictures of these various birds.

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.
