London Naturally are offering an informal Sunday morning stroll to introduce photographers to the wonders of the Woodberry Wetlands site. There will be an opportunity to photograph a variety of nature, wildlife and urban landscapes at this impressive newly opened site.
The Woodberry Wetlands project has transformed the Stoke Newington’s East Reservoir into an urban wetland nature reserve. The site offers about 25 acres of ponds and reedbeds established primarily as a haven for waterfowl.
We will take a leisurely walk along paths around the New River and West Reservoir, stopping at various points. Birds we are likely to see include gadwall, shoveler, tufted duck, common waders and terns. Additionally species such as reed bunting, song thrush, kingfisher and Cetti’s warbler are known to breed at the reserve so may well be seen or heard during our walk. In addition to the birds, the site is home to invertebrates such as damselflies and dragonflies, as well as amphibians and plant life.
We will meet at Manor House Station at 10:00am. From there it’s a short (10 minute) walk along to the entrance to West Reservoir where we will join New River Path. (We will aim to complete the walk about 12:30 followed by optional lunch (at your own cost) at the Coal House Café on Woodberry Wetlands site.
THE EVENT IS FREE BUT NUMBERS ARE LIMITED. PLEASE RESERVE YOUR PLACE USING THE BLUE BUTTON ABOVE.
