Sunday 26th April 2020 was to be the second of this year’s guided bird walks from the Land of Oak & Iron Heritage Centre in Winlaton Mill. The walk was organised with local ornithologist Michael Turner, who has led several popular guided bird walks for Land of Oak & Iron over the past couple of years.
The planned walk was cancelled due to the Coronavirus situation and the need to practice social distancing. However, living locally to the Heritage Centre, Michael decided to go ahead on his own with the ‘Early Morning Guided Bird Walk’ as scheduled between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and report back to give a flavour of spring in the Lower Derwent Valley . . . so bring your imagination and join Michael on his ‘Solo Guided Bird Walk’ by clicking here.
