Family adventures at Upton in half-term

Children playing in the woodland walk

If you followed our life cycle of a bird trail over Easter, you’ll love what we have planned for May Half-term!

Explore the Upton grounds; can you see a pied wagtail?

If you followed our lifecycle of a bird trail over Easter, you’ll love what we have planned for May Half-term!

Follow the fledgling trail to learn about the next step in a birds growth cycle; nestlings into fledglings and then how they grown and learn. What feathers do they grow? When and how do they learn to fly?

Get out the Upton bird map, and see what birds you can spot in the garden. The swallows and house martins will be arriving soon, the pied wagtails that nest on the roofs are already here – can you see them? If you want a more in depth study join our dawn chorus walk on the 12 May at 7am.
