Booming Bitterns Guided Walk at RSPB Ham Wall

Did you know, it has now been just over 15 years since Bitterns first nested at RSPB Ham Wall!

To celebrate this success story, join us on a walk around RSPB Ham Wall as we listen out for the booming call of male Bitterns, and try to spot them in the reeds or flying overhead! All whilst learning about the history of RSPB Ham Wall nature reserve, and the conservation work to help restore habitats for Bitterns.
