A walk while listening to the dawn chorus, tasty bacon butties and a bird-ringing demonstration are on offer at the Seaton Wetlands later this month.

The walk, starting at 5.30am and running until 10am, on Saturday, April 18, will be led by county bird recorder Steve Waite, who will help those taking part to identify the different calls of the early birds at the nature reserve. After the walk, bacon butties will be available, for a small charge, at the Discovery Hut. If conditions allow, the Axe Estuary Ringing Group will be doing a demonstration at the hut, offering people a great chance to see some wild birds up close.

The event is free, but donations are welcome. Booking essential as the event is subject to suitable weather conditions. No dogs are allowed at Seaton Wetlands.

For further information, call the countryside team on 01395 517557 or email countryside@eastdevon.gov.uk

● The Axe Estuary Ringing Group runs several ringing sessions every month throughout the year at the wetlands.
