Brighton Bird Crawl

There are plenty of shops, cafes and pubs named after different birds and perfect for an afternoon crawl from one to another.  We’ll be meeting to watch the starling murmuration at pier entrance 6pm on Thursday 21 March, then visiting The Mucky Duck and ending up at The Geese pub on Southover Street in Hanover.  Get in touch with us anytime that evening and we can let you know where we are and you can fly to us for a bird adventure across Brighton…

Tweet of the Day

There’s no better way to learn about different species of birds, and their unique sounding tweets, than listening to Radio 4’s ‘Tweet of the Day’: these short bullet radio programmes are narrated by a host of different presenters from well-known TV presenters to bird-fanatics, bursting with facts and curious anecdotes about many so many types of birds.

Hear the Dawn Chorus

It’ll be an early-ish start (better when the clocks go forward) but well worth it! Get up with the larks, blackbirds and wrens, sit in a garden or park and listen to them greet the new day. Listen out for chaffinches which sound like they are saying ‘Ginger Beer’ and see if you can spot the teeny weeny wrens sing their impressive hearts out…

Visit a Nature Reserve

If you’re local to Sussex then Amberley Wild Brooks or Arundel Wildlife and Wetlands centre are both a treat, or just find the nearest one to you and see what you can catch sight of. We all love to see big boobies, pert little tits and a huge cock on a Sunday afternoon and if you are lucky you might see all that and more…
