On Saturday 12th May
from 5.30am – 7am, Faughan Valley Landscape Partnership will host a special event to celebrate local wildlife.
People of all ages are invited to come along and be rewarded with an unforgettable experience, as wildlife celebrates the new day in a fantastic fresh air festival of birdsong.
The RSPB will be on hand, to help people recognise the different bird calls and to guide the walk around the beautiful woodland at Gransha. Participants are then invited for tea and scones and to take in the breath-taking scenery of the woodland and city.
Christine Doherty, Derry City Council’s Biodiversity Officer, explained: “Gransha woodland provides a variety of habitats for birds as it is within close proximity to the River Foyle and Enagh Lough and is host to woodland, hedgerows and meadows. It provides a home for several red and amber status bird species. This event will provide people with an opportunity to explore the woodland and learn how to identify the different bird songs.”
Annie Mullan, Faughan Community Engagement Officer added: “This event will raise awareness of the fantastic local wildlife in our woods and will allow people to explore new areas of the Faughan Valley. We would advise anyone interested in attending to book early to avoid disappointment as it is sure to be another great event!”
The event is free and booking is essential.
