Bob Husband, RSPB Group Leader will take us through an aural / visual presentation helping us recall the songs and calls of some of the more familiar species before introducing us to the sounds of our summer visitors.

When did you last hear the Cuckoo and how does a female Cuckoo respond?

Chiffchaffs are named after their song but their calls are very like Willow Warblers.

Blackcap & Garden Warbler songs are often confused but can they be separated on call?

Time: 7.45 pm for 8.00 pm

Price: Usual entrance fees apply - see Programme of Events
