Nightingales at Paxton Pits

14 May 2013, Paxton Pits Nature Reserve

Dr Ray Matthews CBE, of the Friends of Little Paxton Pits Nature Reserve, will follow up his February talk about the history and management of the site with a Nightingale-themed talk and guided walk.

Paxton Pits is one of the premier sites in the UK for this profoundly enigmatic, though declining summer visitor and all are welcome to attend and hear about how this species’ habitat is managed and how the population is monitored at this site.

Meet at the Little Paxton Pits Nature Reserve Visitor Centre at 7pm. Ray will give a short talk on Nightingales and then accompany the group for a guided walk where we should hear several male Nightingales in song.  The event is due to finish at around 9.30pm

There is a cost of £2.50 per head, to be collected on behalf of the Friends of Paxton Pits (this is payable on the day).
