About this Event

Spend the first part of the morning exploring the mounds and learning about birds through creative activities with Billy Colours. We'll then take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch, one of the largest citizen science projects in the world created by the RSPB over forty years go. Last year over a million people took part, counting the different birds they saw in one hour. Together we’ll do our bit to record the birds on Hengrove Mounds, from goldcrests to robins, expect the unexpected!

This session is for everyone, whether you’re a complete beginner or a birding/creative expert. Perfect for families, children and individuals who’d like to find out more about our feathered friends. Please wear sensible footwear and clothing suitable for the weather. If you have binoculars, excellent, bring them along! We'll have a small selection of binoculars available throughout the workshop.

Meet next to Hengrove Playpark, we'll then walk to Hengrove Mounds as a group. Free parking is available in front of Cineworld.

*If joining as a family please only book 1 ticket per family.

Alex Godwin (aka Billy Colours) is a visual artist working on a new public art project for the Urban Quarter development , aiming to encourage local people to explore the Mounds and take in the beautiful nature right on their doorstep.

Big Garden Birdwatch is a great opportunity to enjoy time with nature. And you never know what you might see! From chirpy sparrows to sprightly robins, birds are sure to brighten your day. Whatever you see matters, it all helps the RSPB to build a better understanding of how our birds are faring and will help Avon Wildlife Trust enhance the site for people and wildlife.
