Upcoming Events

Birds of the Brecks (Spring), 20th May 2017, 10:00-16:30, Lackford Lakes

The day will be mainly led by Steve Piotrowski (Wildlife Consultant and author of Birds of Suffolk) and Su Gough (BTO), focusing on spring/summer birds in the Brecks. The day will start with an introduction to bird identification, followed by identification through bird song. There will be a field session within the Lackford Lakes Suffolk Wildlife Trust reserve that will last over 2 hours and provide a good chance for birding with two experts on hand, and excellent tutoring on field craft throughout. Although the focus is on birds we will also have a small mammals of the Brecks introduction session with the opening of our pre-set mammal traps, run by Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
