Birdwatching at Canons Farm and Banstead Woods


Leader: David Campbell

Early May is an excellent time for seeing migrant birds as they stop off at sites such as Canons Farm on their way from Africa to their British and Northern European breeding sites. Much of the excitement of birdwatching at this time of year is the inability to predict accurately which species will be encountered. However, you can expect to see new arrivals such as wheatear, hobby, whinchat, yellow wagtail and warblers, with a chance of red kite, ring ouzel and cuckoo.

Time: 9.00 am Duration: 3 hours


Meet at Canons Farmhouse, Canons Lane, Burgh Heath KT20 6DD - grid ref TQ247576 [park on lane outside the farmhouse, or on Ballards Green, off Canons Lane]


As above


A donation of £3 per person to the Canons Farm and Banstead Woods Bird Group would be appreciated.
