Family Bird Watching Day, Morecambe Tuesday 23 October 10am-2pm 

Want to know a wader from a wildfowl? A knot from a redshank? What is a roost and why Morecambe Bay is so important for over-wintering birds?
 
Morecambe Bay Partnership is encouraging families to get out and about this half term, and explore the fascinating and immense bird population that descends on the Bay each winter. We are inviting families to join us at the Family Bird Watching Day on Morecambe Promenade on Tuesday 23rd October 10am-2pm to find the answer to all your birdy questions and more.
 
Visit the Morecambe Bay Partnership stand, on the promenade opposite the Winter Gardens, and meet the Partnership’s 'Natural Ambassador' volunteers - look out for the bright blue jackets - who will be delighted to talk to you and fill in the answers to all your questions about the birds of Morecambe Bay. 
 
Pick up one of their delightful 'Birds of the Bay' leaflets and tick off the birds you spot, as you view birds out on the Bay from different viewing stations along the promenade. 
 
Morecambe Bay Partnership’s Natural Ambassadors are raising awareness about the birds of Morecambe Bay and how to appreciate them without disturbing them during their vital feeding and roosting times, which help them to refuel for their long journeys to other parts of the world. They are part of the Heritage Lottery funded ‘Headland to Headspace’ Scheme, which is offering a whole host of volunteering and community activities to help conserve, understand and celebrate Morecambe Bay’s rich natural and cultural heritage. Find out more or download our 'bords of the Bay' leaflet here.
