Spring will be in the air as we go looking for our local feathered friends that live around Pocklington Canal. Identifying species by both sight and sound, we will also look for signs of bird courtship and nest building. No prior knowledge is presumed, so if you can’t tell a chiffchaff from a chaffinch, this is a good place to start!

This event is suitable for accompanied children but is aimed at adults.

Booking is essential, you can book your place here - Birdwatching for beginners
