Last weeks Birdwatching Event started bright and early at 7.30am as it was all about the The Dawn Chorus. Families were treated to a beautiful symphony from birds such as Blackcaps, Garden Warbler’s and Blackbirds.

During Spring the Park comes alive with not only birdsong but its also the best time to discover the lovely trees and plants that start to blossom. Below is a picture of a tree that is called a Handkerchief tree which was admired by all. You can find this in the Prince Charles Spinney which proved to be a great spot for listening out for The Dawn Chorus at the event.

We were very lucky as we had a couple of talented young photographers who attended last weeks event who have sent us some amazing pictures. Below are some lovely shots that were captured by Tristan on the day. Well done and thank you for sending these in Tristan! They are brilliant.


The picture below was also taken by Tristan and this is a 50p coin next to a cracked eggshell which is presumed to belong to a Robin! Good spot!

We also wanted to share a picture that was sent in by Oliver who also attended the Dawn Chorus last week. Although this was not taken at the event it was too good of a picture we just had to share! Thank you Oliver! What a great shot of a beautiful kingfisher!

The morning was enjoyed by all and we hope to see old and new faces at the next birdwatching event!
