Saturday 20th June, 10am-12pm

This summer morning walk will take place in the beautiful Walthamstow Wetlands, filled with reservoirs, open green spaces, hedgerows and wildlife. Experiencing Mindful walking and practices within the beautiful environment can create calming, restorative feelings and a sense of well-being. Being Mindful in nature invites us to reawaken to our senses and connect and learn from each season.

Guide in a Hide at East Warwick Reservoir

Every Tuesday 11am - 1pm; Every Saturday 10am – noon and noon – 2pm

Walthamstow Wetlands is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It also forms part of the Lee Valley Special Protection Area and is on the Ramsar List of Wetlands of International Importance. The ten reservoirs offer a haven for overwintering wildfowl, such as pochard and gadwall, and are regionally important for breeding birds such as grey heron, tufted duck and little egret. Why not drop in and join our volunteer guides in either the hide on East Warwick or the Richard Woolly hide, on Reservoir 3, for a spot of bird watching or just to find out more information about Walthamstow Wetlands. Look out for the ‘open’ sign on the hide or ask at reception in the Engine House where our guides will be.

Free event. There is no need to book or register - visitors can just drop in and speak with one of our fantastic experts all about the wonderful birds they can see from the bird hide.
