Looking to get more active in 2019? Start the New Year right by joining St Helens Council’s Rangers on two winter bird walks around Sidling Lane Local Nature Reserve and Sankey Valley Country Park in January.
On these walks, which are up to 6 miles long and take in the beautiful countryside, up to 40 different species of bird can be spotted, so for a clearer view feel free to bring along binoculars.
The first walk gets underway at 9:30am on Sunday 6 January at Sidling Lane Nature Reserve, while the second walk will take place on Sunday 20 January, starting at 10:00am from Sankey Valley Country Park.
Stout footwear, warm clothing and/or waterproofs are recommended, along with something to eat and drink.
Those wishing to attend the Siding Lane walk are asked to meet at the main Ranger Centre car park, while the meeting point for the Sankey Valley event is the Heritage Visitor Centre on Blackbrook Road.
Rangers request that dogs are left at home.
These events are limited to 25 places per walk so it is asked that places are booked in advance by contacting the Rangers on 01744 677772.
