Chase or Amble? 'Get to Know your Birds' Spring Event

Chase or Amble? 'Get to Know your Birds' Spring Event

Tuesday, 22 April 2008

Cannock Chase was the venue for the third in our series of successful 'Get to Know your Birds' events. We set out from Seven Springs car park on a dull and cold morning which had little feel of Spring about it. Despite the weather (and the noise from the shooting club nearby!) we managed 25 species, including Grey Wagtail and Raven. Summer visitors were limited to Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff - other migrants being delayed in their return by the unseasonably cold weather. Members of the group helped new birders with tips about using binoculars and identifying bird song. Details of our next event in this successful series will be published soon on the 'events 'page.
