Wetland Bird Walk at Tucklesholme
Barton-under-Needwood, Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, DE13 8EN
About the event
A former gravel pit being restored back to a wetland habitat, it provides a home for a number of key breeding bird species that specialise in this open wetland environment. This includes species such as little ringed plover, lapwing, oystercatcher, skylark, shelduck and common sandpiper. A reed bed has been installed this winter, and so it will be exciting to see what colonises this during the spring. We may also be able to get exciting views of a tern colony that established there in 2018. This will be one of the first guided walks on the site, and will also include a walk along the adjoining River Trent for a stretch.
