WILDLIFE experts at RSPB Arne nature reserve are hosting a series of morning walks focusing on migration.

Daniel Wright, RSPB Arne visitor experience volunteer, said: “It is that magical time of year again when we get to see some of the birds that pass through Arne on their voyage south.

"As the season changes, many species make their way from their breeding grounds in the North to their wintering grounds in the South. We are seeing growing numbers of winter waders, with Spoonbill gathering regularly on the harbours edge at Arne, and we can expect to see some usual species on their journey – common redstart, wheatear, brambling as well as a surprise or two thrown in.”

Daniel says the best time to see the phenomenon of migration is in the early morning.

He added: "We’ll head out on to the reserve at 7am with one of our experienced wildlife guides to the best places to see and hear passing migrants.

"Hopefully we’ll be in time to catch the sunrise, before rounding off our walk with a well-earned full English breakfast at the café.”

The walks, from 7-9am, are scheduled throughout September and October
