Bins at the ready... NEW YEAR’S BIRDING

Countryfile Magazine - - Month In The Country -

New Year’s Day is busy for bird­ers, as many head into the coun­try­side to get their an­nual tally off to a fly­ing start. Some go to the High­lands, hop­ing to glimpse snowy ptarmi­gan (right) and ma­jes­tic white-tailed ea­gles. Many re­serves run bird­watch­ing walks on 1 Jan­uary, in­clud­ing Spade Oak in Lit­tle Mar­low (east­berk­sr­spb.org.uk), Lon­don’s Waltham­stow Wet­lands

(waltham­stowwet­lands.com) and

Slim­bridge Wet­land Cen­tre (wwt.org. uk/wet­land-cen­tres/slim­bridge/).
