Spring Migrants at Hamwell Leaze

Stroud Valleys Project have one of their free events on Tuesday 27th April, 11am to 1pm at Hamwell Leaze (alongside the Ruscombe Brook).

Here is what they say about the event: "The spring is definitely here! The leaves are unfurling and the trees will soon look lush and green…so how will you know whether it’s a song thrush or a chiffchaff singing their heart out when you can’t see them? Listen to their song, of course! Barbara Wood will teach you which invisible bird is responsible for which song. Please bring binoculars if possible. We’ll be walking over grassland so the event isn’t suitable for wheelchairs, prams or for people with severe mobility problems. Wear wellies so we can pop into the willow copse, which might still be flooded. Meet: Entrance to Hamwell Leaze wildlife site next door to Walter Preston Court, off Hyett Road, Cashes Green, Stroud. For more details and to book a place contact Ivi on 01453 753358 (07876 050878 on the morning of the birdwatch)."
