Volunteers at the Adel Dam Nature Reserve took two groups of club members and friends around the reserve on 29 May. Tour leader Dave Johnston gave a brief history of the area followed by the opportunity to savour the diversity of bird life living in the area.
“Marion and I thought that the visit was one of the best trips we have ever been on. So much knowledge, so effortlessly shared and all the birds performing”.
The reserve is to be found at the ‘far end’ of Golden Acre Park, and entrance is free, though donations are gratefully received to help maintain the area and of course, feed the birds!
As part of their 50th year anniversary, the volunteers including one of the founders, Peter Larner, have written and produced a very good booklet on the reserve – available for a donation (£2). These will be available on their Guide in the Hide events which take place every third Sunday of the month.
More information on the reserve can be found at their website
