** SOLD OUT** Nest Box Monitoring Walk

25th May 2024 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Experience young birds up close and detail on our Nest Monitoring Bird Walk this Spring.

Every spring, Stanwick Lakes conducts nest box monitoring as part of our contribution to the British Trust for Ornithology’s (BTO) national bird population survey.

Led by experienced nest recorders, trained by the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), you are invited to witness these conservation efforts, first hand. Our dedicated (licenced) volunteers monitor nests, count eggs, and tag young birds with metal rings for tracking, providing valuable insights into the species that live in different habitats, the success rates of breeding, and the impact of climate change on bird populations.

This scheme has been running since 2007, and over 3000 eggs have been monitored in that time!
At time of writing, there are 163 eggs so far this year, from birds such as Blue Tits, Great Tits, Kestrels and Tawny Owls. This walk will offer the opportunity to  learn about birds on the reserve from knowledgeable ornithologists, and potentially to see some of these birds up close, particularly the beautiful baby tits, if they’re yet to fledge.

So don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to meet the birds at Stanwick Lakes! Join us for the Nest Box Monitoring Walk on 25th May from 10 am to noon.

£3 for adults, £2 for children.

Booking is essential, please email Please specify in your email how many adult and children you would like to attend.
