Wildlife on the move

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - EVENTS | READER OFFER -

See wildlife migration in ac­tion. The Au­tumn Migration Walk at Dun­geness Na­ture Re­serve on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 15, is a chance to see birds and in­sects come to the area for the win­ter to es­cape colder cli­mates – and oth­ers to leave for warmer ones.

Watch as the sand martins gather in their hun­dreds to feed be­fore head­ing off to Africa and look out for the rare wader amid them all. Duck and geese num­bers also build up on the lakes at this time of year. The walk at 10.30am is led by a friendly and knowl­edge­able guide around the re­serve, when vis­i­tors can learn about why Dun­geness is an im­por­tant part of the migration route. It costs £7 and £3.50 for chil­dren. Ad­vance book­ing is a must, with the walk tak­ing two hours. To book call RSPB Dun­geness on

01797 320588.
