Spotted on Bird Walk – Greater Blue Tree Climber!

Our Bird Walk was a success (despite grey skies) with an enthusiastic group of members plus some visiting RSPB spotters invited by Stuart.  Between them all 23 different species were identified. The visitors were impressed by the habitats and birds Shrewsbury Park has to offer.

Nicky Wilson of RSPB Bexley wrote a wonderfully detailed and interesting report and graciously agreed to share it, so I’ll leave you to reading it yourself on this link.  Thank you so much , Nicky!

Guided Bird Walk – Saturday 24 March 9am start

Come join this FSP walk led by Stuart Banks, resident RSPB member, for an hour or two discovering what’s going on as the nesting season starts.  The birdsong is growing every day!

The full route will be somewhat up and down but leisurely. Sturdy shoes and binoculars would be helpful.  Email werfsp@gmail.com and we may be able to help with accessibility. Bus 291 stops at the gate.

Free to members, £2 for non-members.

Sorry no dogs, please.

This is a RAIN or SHINE walk!

Watch the birdies!

FSP would like to thank Stuart Banks very much for an entertaining wander through the park on the morning of 30 April for nearly two hours.  The walk was well attended on a  beautiful, bright Saturday and once we got our eye in the birds appeared; everything from a long-tailed tit to a kestrel.  And of course there were the local parakeets in full song.

The bird population is very active right now so get out and have a listening walk through the park yourself.

New notice board

We are also grateful to a member of the Management Committee, Ron Senkus, for bringing the carpark notice board back to life.  And it will take decades for this one to go weak at the legs!
