Bird Wise Walks & Talks

Join Bird Wise East Kent for a series of walks and talks to learn about the 'Daring Dozen', 12 species of migratory birds that are heading to our coastline this winter to roost, rest and recuperate.

The talks are designed to help people wise up to bird disturbance, the events will teach the public about the perilous journey birds make each winter and why it is important that they are given room to roost, rest, and recuperate whilst visiting us in Thanet. These birds travel from as far as Canada from across the Arctic tundra to feed on our shores.
