About The Event
Join us with Nick Adams as we learn about some of the fantastic bird-life here on Eastbrook Farm.
This evening walk will be a mixture of both theory and experience. Starting in the training room Nick will give a brief overview of some of the fantastic birdlife and wildlife you are likely to see on the farm and surrounding areas as well as talk about identifying them correctly and particular behaviours.
Once we have spent a little time talking about what we are likely to see we will head out onto the farm to areas preselected by Nick for their relevance and birdlife activity.
This evening walk is a perfect introduction to local wildlife but also a great way of boosting knowledge for the enthusiast.
Tickets include refreshments and transport around the farm -children also welcome
Nick has had an interest in wildlife and birds in particular for more than forty years. After pursuing a non-wildlife career in Accountancy and many years of volunteering as a warden for the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, he decided to work for the RSPB as a Research Assistant, then working on and running the Wessex Stone-curlew Project before heading to Newcastle to be the Area Conservation Manager for Northeast England, Yorkshire & The Humber. The latter job led to many days inside doing spreadsheets, just like accountancy! So Nick decided to return to Wiltshire where he is now freelance naturalist working with landowners to help them bring wildlife into their thought processes and leading walks for people new to wildlife watching, but wanting to try it out. Having studied a number of taxa over the years besides birds, Nick was offered a Fellowship by the British Naturalist Association in recognition of his all-round knowledge. He is also currently the Wiltshire county bird recorder, helping people understand what birds they are seeing and what they can do to see more.
