Beginners Birdwatching Walk 2 of 3 with RSPB Devon

Join us for the first of a series of three walks with experienced birdwatcher and guide Dr Chris Lee.

We'll explore a different RSPB reserve in Devon each month; Bowling Green Marsh, the Exe Estuary, and Aylesbeare Common.

You'll learn to distinguish different bird calls and song, recognise a variety of species and meet like minded people with a passion for wildlife.  

These walks are at a leisurely pace, with plenty of stops to birdwatch. Get ready to be wowed by the wonderful wildlife on your doorstep! 

Please dress appropriately for the weather - sturdy walking shoes and a waterproof coat is always advisable.

If you don't have your own binoculars, you can hire them for the events by selecting the Products button when you're buying your ticket.
