Bittern Roost Watch
Join our conservation team for a visit to the Bittern Information Point Hide where you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of an elusive Bittern coming in to roost in the reedbed in front of the hide on Seventy Acres Lake. If Bittern decide not to join us on the night there will still be plenty of wildlife to see and a chance to find out more about the works that are carried out to help Bittern and other wetland wildlife in this internationally important wetland site and the wider Lee Valley. Hot drinks will be provided to help fight off the chill.
Please bring a torch with you as it will be dark by the time we get back to the car park.
> No Experience of Bird Watching is necessary; staff and volunteers will be on hand to point out the birds
> Please bring binoculars if you have them
> Wrap up well, it can get chilly and there will be a certain amount of waiting around in the hide
