Event description

Description

Come along and discover the canal’s wildlife at this free event. Bird ringing, guided walks and fishing are amongst the highlights – as well as boat trips aboard the New Horizons. Free drop in event, no need to book.

Before the event at Melbourne Arm there will be an early morning bird ringing session nearby, then there will be demonstrations throughout the day at the event itself. There’ll be guided walks to find wildlife, as well as pond dipping to look at the invertebrate life beneath the water’s surface. Let’s Fish will be running today so people can get a closer view of the different fish that thrive here. Bird box building will also be available for you to take a home away for your garden. Pocklington Canal Amenity Society will be running their trip boat all day.

This event is part of the Heritage Lottery Fund Project, and is being jointly run by the Canal & River Trust and Natural England’s National Nature Reserves Team.
