Sunday 18 March - Waterbird Count

Meet: 10am at the Tea Hut, Wanstead Park.

The last of our monthly winter counts of ducks, grebes and other waterbirds will probably show a falling off in numbers of Gadwall and Tufted Duck, but maybe the chance of an early Garganey on its way north. The information we collect is fed into a national database to monitor the health of these birds’ populations. The count starts at 10am and usually finishes around 12:30.

Free, organised by the The WREN Group. No experience necessary.

Thursday 19 April - Nature Ramble

Meet 10am at Stratford station, outside Jubilee line platforms 13-15.

This month's nature ramble will see us exploring the Thames between Kew and Richmond. The two banks are heavily contrasted - a rural idyll on the south bank, in contrast to the industrialised north bank around Brentford. Between them we'll be able to mount the Wren Group's own Springwatch as the new season belatedly gets under way.

We will be walking six miles from Kew Bridge station. Meet: 10am at Stratford station, outside Jubilee line platforms 13-15. Just turn up, no need to book. Bring a snack, drink and Oyster or Freedom Pass. Back at Stratford about 4.30pm.
