Henfield Birdwatch Autumn Big Bird Bash @ Henfield Area, various walks
Oct 2 all-day
Henfield Birdwatch Autumn Big Bird Bash @ Henfield Area, various walks | Henfield | England | United Kingdom

Lots of people combed the countryside on the five Spring Big Bird Bash walks and clocked up an amazing 69 species which has set a massive target to be beaten this Autumn when we are at it again over the weekend of 2nd – 4th October.

Everyone is welcome to join in and you don’t have to know anything about birds as the walks are fun anyway! Hopefully the leaders will be able to identify what we see or hear and if not they will probably pretend they can. Henfield Birdwatch members will receive details nearer the time. For anyone else just ring Nigel Colgate 01273 493037 or e mail nigel.colgate@btinternet.com
