Friday 26th July 10.00am-1.00pm Abberton Reservoir
(£10 per person). Meet in the Essex Wildlife Trust car park, Church Road (B1026), Layer de la Haye, CO2 0EU. TL963178. We’ll probably visit Wigborough Bay and both Causeways in search of birds, but it will depend on the latest bird news. (Please bring EWT membership card if you have one in case we visit the reserve.) Option to stay on for lunch – either bring a packed lunch or buy from the tearoom.
Species we’ll be hoping to see include: common and black terns, red crested pochard, great white egret, yellow wagtail, returning waders (eg black tailed godwit, ruff, green and wood sandpipers, little ringed plover), marsh harrier, hobby, osprey and other rarities possible.
Booking in advance please
