Experts are on hand at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve in Doncaster to teach you the basics of bird watching.

Join Yorkshire Wildlife Trust at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve, Doncaster, on Sunday 20th January at 10:30am to learn the basics of bird watching.

Perhaps you have started to take up bird watching as a hobby but would like to go out with a local expert? Potteric Carr Nature Reserve is home to a mixture of habitats including wetland, reedbed and woodland, despite being surrounded by urban business parks, a motorway and close to Doncaster Town centre. There are a wide variety of birds that are here all year round and some migrants that are quite rare such as the elusive and endangered bittern. There are 14 hides to choose from which are spread out over the 205 hectares of land and water.

Winter is one of the best times to get out and enjoy a spot of bird watching, with leaves off trees and waders and wildfowl settled on our lakes there really is plenty to see.

So if you have received a new pair of binoculars or a scope for Christmas and would like to put them to good use then come along to the Beginners Bird Watching event by calling 01302 570077 to book a place.
