Chirp & Drift: Bird Migration Walk & Workshop

Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve

Join us for a walk with bird expert and writer Laurence Rose at stunningly beautiful Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve. Listen, watch and learn about songs, behaviours, flight patterns and migration routes of the birds we find there.

After a group lunch** poet Sarah Hymas and artist Kathy Hinde will lead a workshop inviting you to create short poems inspired by birds and to play with sound and light sculptures to ‘imitate’ bird song and send coded messages to each other.

Following the workshop, we will return to the reed beds to try a murmuration of starlings; one of nature‘s most breathtaking phenomena.

No experience necessary, just an enthusiasm to play and create. If you have any questions about accessibility or the workshop, please contact Alice Booth

Workshop for Adults and Children age 7+. (We request children under 14 attend with an adult.)

Limited spaces available, booking is essential.

Please bring binoculars if you have them.

* May finish slightly earlier or later depending on the time of starling murmurations.
** Please bring packed lunch. Tea, coffee and soft drinks will be provided.

The walk and workshop is FREE but Leighton Moss RSPB reserve has a standard entrance fee of adults £8, Children £4 (first child free, under 5s free). Entry is free for RSPB members. Half-price entry for arriving on public transport or by bike.
