Events for adults

A calendar of weekly activities as well as seasonal events will take place throughout the year to engage with the local community and with those further afield, both in the UK and internationally.

Due to the national restrictions in place from 5 November 2020 no events are currently taking place. 

From birdwatching courses to photography workshops, there will be something for everyone.

Guide in a Hide at East Warwick Reservoir


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.
