Yorkshire Wildlife Trust would like to give you an insight into one of Britain’s most elusive and threatened, yet beautiful bird’s on Saturday 26th January at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve, Doncaster. The nature reserve will be hosting a bittern talk at 10:30am, followed by a walk in the afternoon.
Bird expert David Woodmansey will be leading the day, sure to provide visitors with plenty of interesting facts and figures on this distinguished bird. With many recent sightings of bitterns on the nature reserve there is also a very good chance of spotting one during the afternoon walk.
Jonathan Leadley, Director of Development at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust says:
‘David Woodmansey has been an active birder for many years in the Yorkshire region, and has helped to contribute to records in the area. His impressive knowledge of Yorkshire birds is guaranteed to make for an interesting talk, followed by an enjoyable walk around the nature reserve.’
The bittern is an elusive, secretive member of the heron family which is dependent on reed bed habitats contributing to its red list status on the species list, one of the most threatened in the United Kingdom. Thanks to the ideal habitat at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve this beautiful bird is found on the site.
The talk will take place at 10:30am, visitors are asked to arrive slightly before this time to get seated, and will be followed by an opportunity to buy lunch in the café onsite. Following a break the guided walk will take place on the nature reserve and is expected to finish for 3pm.
Tickets for the event are £12.50 per person and include refreshments but not lunch. Booking is essential and can be done by calling 01302 570077 or emailing email@example.com. Further details about Potteric Carr Nature Reserve and the event can be found at www.ywt.org.uk.
