Birding for beginners - Winter Wetlands at Pulborough Brooks

Learn a little more about the birds on our nature reserve and how to get to grips with bird identification. This month we'll be focusing on our winter visitors – waders, ducks and hedgerow birds. We'll begin our session indoors with an introduction to birding and our target species for the morning whilst enjoying tea, coffee & biscuits. We’ll then head out onto the wetland trail in smaller groups to watch and identify some fabulous winter wildlife. If you are an absolute beginner you may want to try our ‘birding for absolute beginners bird’ session first which will introduce you to the resources you’ll need to start birdwatching and help you get to grips with our garden and common countryside birds.

Information on access around the trails

Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear for your adventure. If you have binoculars then do bring them along but we will have binoculars for you to borrow if not.

The wetland trail includes access to our hides and bird feeding station. The paths are suitable for pushchairs and our tramper mobility buggy (which must be booked in advance). Dogs, other than assistance dogs, are not permitted on this trail.

There is a car park, play area toilets, cafe and shop at the nature reserve.
