Autumn Bird watching walk

On Saturday 7 November another of the hugely popular bird watching walks will be taking place.

If you would like to join in meet at 08:00 at the foot of the steps into Millhouses Park from Archer Road. The walk will go through the park returning through Ecclesall Woods and should take 2 to 2.5 hours. If the weather is kind you should encounter a range of resident birds and hopefully see autumn migrants flying over. A number of pairs of binoculars are available to borrow on the day.

Bird walk, 24th April

On Saturday 24th April, Pete Brown took a group on the bi-annual Bird Walk round Millhouses Park and Ecclesall Woods.

The start was at 8am on a cold but bright Spring morning and the accompanying photos will give you a flavour of a very pleasant two hours.

31 different birds were noted, a little down as many of the migrating birds had not yet arrived due to the cold NW winds, that had been with us for so long, that also brought the volcanic ash. Vapour trails in the sky were commented upon!
