Join winter wader walks with the RSPB at Fairhaven

Ribble discovery centre

This winter, join the team at the RSPB’s Ribble Discovery Centre for a Wader Walk to discover the marvels of the vast Ribble Estuary.

Starting at the visitor centre, the walks are a perfect chance to watch large numbers of wading birds as they fly in to feed on the food-rich shoreline at Granny’s Bay.

And if you join the January walk, it’s also the perfect chance to brush up on your bird identification skills ahead of the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch – which is taking place on January 30-31 – as you walk towards Lowther Gardens.

Each of the Wader Walks will take approximately 1.5-2 hours and will finish at the Ribble Discovery Centre with hot drinks.

This event is open to all – no previous experience is necessary – and there is no need to book. It is also free of charge, although donations are welcome.

Please remember to dress for the winter weather and bring binoculars if you can, although staff at the visitor centre will have a few spare pairs for people to borrow.

Dates:            Sunday 9 January, 12 noon
Sunday 21 February, 12 noon
Sunday 20 March, 11.30
