Putney Society Bird Walk. Sunday 14th April 2019 on Wimbledon Common at 8:00 am

Event Date: Apr 14, 2019

Here is a wonderful opportunity to find out more about the bird life of Wimbledon Common. 

The date and time?   Sunday 14th April 2019 at 8 am!

The place?  Wimbledon Common - the exact meeting location is to be confirmed.

 

Please email judith.chedwiggen@gamil.com as soon as possible if you would like to be on the walk - places are strictly limited!

 

The variety of habitat yields a diversity of species, including tree-, hole- and ground-nesters, wildfowl and birds of prey.   Given that Wimbledon Common is essentailly an urban setting and is widely used for a range of activites, the number of different species is astonishing.   

Local volunteers have been keeping records of bird sightings on the Commons since 1974.   They are currently complied by Adrian Podmore and before him Dave Wills, Ron Kettle and Eric McMillan.  Copies of all these records are held in the Rangers' Office.

Warm drinks will be available before and after the walk.
