If you want to know how to tell your geese from your swans, your dabbling ducks from your diving ducks, then join the Friends of Daneshill Lakes for a stroll around the beautiful Daneshill Lakes Local Nature Reserve on Sunday 9th February, starting at 10.00am.
Daneshill Lakes, situated on Daneshill Road, Torworth (DN22 8RB) is home to a treasure trove of wintering waterfowl which are now looking their best as they pair up ready for breeding in the spring. Birding enthusiast Barry Cartwright will be on hand to impart his wide knowledge and help with easy identification pointers. You may also spy some of Daneshill’s smaller feathered friends too as you saunter around the lake.
This event is organised by the Friends of Daneshill Lakes and is free to join. It will be suitable for all ages of visitor and all abilities. Meet in the car park at Daneshill Lakes at 9.45am and take along binoculars if you have them. If not, they’ll have some available to borrow. They plan to finish the walk at about 12.00pm. Wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the outdoors. Wheelchair access is good.
