Survey the birds at Beacon Park

Keen twitchers are invited to help an RSPB expert to survey Beacon Park’s feathered friends this April.

Come to Beacon Park on Sunday 27 April, between 9am and 11am, to spot and survey birds with Robert Russon – a local ornithologist.

Robert will help the group to identify the different bird species and how to recognise birdsong. The birds that are spotted will be noted down, helping the RSPB to monitor local bird populations.

Robert Russon, RSPB expert, said: “Beacon Park’s got a good variety of birds and we should spot a fair number at this time of year. We will be looking to see some summer visitors, such as the warbler and hope to count around 25 different species on the day. Everyone’s welcome to come to join me at this free event, and don’t forget your binoculars!”

Wearing warm clothing and suitable footwear is recommended. To find out more about visiting Beacon Park, go to
