Fingringhoe Wick – Warblers, Waders & Wildfowl

Thursday 18th April 2024

Fingringhoe Wick is one of the best reserves in the county for breeding passerines and in spring, the bushes and scrub are alive with birdsong. We hope to see and hear Common Chiffchaff, Common & Lesser Whitethroats, Willow Warbler and Eurasian Blackcap and it is probably the best site in Essex to see and hear Common Nightingales which will have arrived from their African wintering grounds during the past few weeks.

The patchwork of habitat offers some great birding potential and we will search for European Turtle Dove, Western Marsh Harrier and Eurasian Hobby plus the River Colne is a great place to scan for wildfowl including Dark-bellied Brent Geese and waders that may include Grey & European Golden Plovers, Red Knot and Black-tailed Godwits which will be in their exquisite breeding plumage.
£35 per person (does not include entrance fees or parking charges)
