Event description

Description

The large stretch of freshwater habitat between the River Calder and the M1 provides a much needed food supply for birds on the move. Pugney's and Calder Wetlands often produces some great birds during the autumn and winter months such as smew, scoter and long-tailed duck. Explore the farmland and wooded areas around the sites for partridge and winter flocks of thrushes and look for little owl along the way. Free refreshments and a bird list are available at the end of the walk.
