Monthly Wildlife Walks
Key DetailsDescription: Started early in 2020 and organised by Martin Singleton of the Wickford Wildlife Society (WWS). Held monthly, on a Wednesday morning, Martin will be facilitating a sociable and leisurely walk around the Park looking out for, and recording, birds and other wildlife spotted or heard. Martin provides a report on each event, and also presents an annual summary. These events are free, but if you are interested in joining them, please register interest with Martin, so that you can be notified of future plans by email and / or WhatsApp. You are advised to 'get in the loop' because sometimes it is necessary to vary the date and / or time from the standard pattern. If you come throughout the year you may be amazed at the changing patterns of sightings throughout the seasons.
Date: Usually held on the third Wednesday of the month, with occasional variations. [Please note that along with most of our other planned activity, these events were suspended due to the Coronavirus Pandemic for several months, but they have been reinstated]. Remaining planned dates for the current year are displayed on our Calendar page
