Join Pensthorpe Natural Park, near Fakenham, at its Spring Calling event between 25 May and 2 June 2019 and learn to identify some of the most popular bird calls.

While over 400 birds have been identified in Britain, this is a chance to learn some of the best-loved bird songs that you can hear in your own gardens with a special 'songs of spring' self-guided trail around the woodlands and wetlands of the reserve during May Half Term.

Families can also have a go at some hands-on pond dipping tutorials to see what they can discover and identify in the watery depths. Water boatman, Daphne and water beetles are common finds, so young nature enthusiasts can enjoy seeing what they can catch in their net!

Join in with some nature-inspired craft making activities, take part in a Hootz & Friends Discovery Trail and a Sculpture Trail at your own pace, to explore the further reaches of the reserve and celebrate all that is wonderful about the natural world.

Deb Jordan, owner of Pensthorpe Natural Park, said: "Spring is the time of year when the dawn chorus wakes us with the sounds of chirping and tweeting as songbirds defend their territories and sing to attract a mate. Spring Calling will celebrate this and give families a chance to learn and mimic some bird songs, and identify other familiar wildlife sounds too."

Plus join in with Daily Bird Feeds, hop on the Pensthorpe Explorer and let loose in the award-winning eco-play areas WildRootz and Hoot House, featuring dens, tunnels, slides and zip wires.

Spring Calling runs between 10am and 4pm at Pensthorpe Natural Park between 25 May and 2 June 2019.
