Big Wetland Birdwatch at Morden Hall Park

Family group bird watching

Discover a wealth of wetland bird life at Morden Hall Park this January. Join expert volunteers from the Morden Hall Park Nature Group and RSPB and help us to identify the feathered friends that call this urban oasis home.

On the 20th and 21st of Janaury Morden Hall Park welcomes the RSPB to join its own Nature Group Volunteers as part of a Big Wetland Birdwatch. This free activity will help us keep track of the birdlife that exists around the park and help families begin to identify a number of the parks regular flying visitors. 

We expect to see a wide range of birdlife over the weekend, from cormorants to herons, goldcrests and robins and if we are lucky even our resident kingfisher. Look out for our visiting little egret on the Morden Hall lawn opposite the white bridge or in the Rose Garden and for harder to spot wetland species such as snipe from the boardwalk The activity comes one week before the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch and we hope that visitors will be able to use their new and enhanced skills to spot new birds in their own local green spaces and gardens.

Have you met the cheeky heron?

Join us from 11am-3pm on Saturday and Sunday when our volunteer teams will be on hand to help with identification and point out the best spots around the park. Find us in the gazebos near the white bridge where you can pick up more information and make a treat for the birds in your garden.

Morden Hall Park Nature Group is a group of adult volunteers who are passionate about nature. The group runs species surveys and walks to record the wildlife that lives in the park
