Countryside team invite you to be up with the Lark – and other wild birds

As we head towards International Dawn Chorus Day in May, East Devon District Council’s Countryside team are organising their own celebration at the Seaton Wetlands on Saturday 18 April at 5.30am.

The Dawn Chorus Walk will be led by Steve Waite, County Bird Recorder, who will help to identify each species by their song. Weather permitting, there will be a demonstration by the Axe Estuary Ringing group after the walk – a chance to see wild birds up close.

Bacon butties and hot drinks will be available for a small charge. Set your alarm and don’t miss this opportunity to experience the full glory of the Wetlands birds greeting the day.

This is a free event but donations are welcome. Booking essential, so call 01395 517557 or email.
