What Guided walk (no dogs)

When 10am on Saturday 21 June

Where Nature Centre Car Park, Attenborough Nature Reserve, Barton Lane, Attenborough, Nottinghamshire, NG9 6DY

In early summer the 220ha reserve’s wetland habitat will be bursting with nesting warblers, including reed, chiffchaff and blackcap.

The group hopes to see nesting great crested grebes, black-headed gulls and possibly little ringed plovers on the sandy scrapes.

The three-hour walk visits nature hotspots, including the new sand martin hide on the peninsula.

Binoculars can be hired from the Nature Centre. 

Each month, we feature a natural history club in the magazine and an exciting upcoming event the club has planned.
