Wivenhoe Watching Wildlife welcomes in 2013

edited December 2012 in Wivenhoe Wildlife
The WWW team will be running its first event of the year on New Year's Day - nothing too strenuous, but a chance to blow away the Christmas cobwebs with a look at some of the estuary birds. All welcome - from 1330 'til dark on the Shipyard jetty, wrapped up warm of course, and we will give you the chance to watch the winter wildlife with us from there or to take a short walk along the sea wall. We'll see if we can produce a warming tot of mulled wine too!

Thanks to all who have taken part in our events throughout 2012, our first year. We have certainly enjoyed putting them on: two indoor events at the Nottage, Dawn Chorus/ Nightingale extravaganza; two mothing sessions; the all-day jetty vigil; and the Fungus Foray. And in helping you all to keep in touch with what is around and where through our postings and photos on the forum. Thank you also for your overwhelmingly positive feedback on our efforts, and we look forward to giving you more of the same next year, together with a few additions by popular request (flowers, dragonflies and pond-dipping on Ferry Marsh is high on our agenda). Watch this space for news of upcoming events, but as always if there is anything else you would like, please let us know and well try and sort it out!

With very best wishes for the festive season, hopefully filled with waxwings!

Chris & Judith, Glyn & Debs, Greg & Sarah, Richard & Sally - your WWW team


  • Happy New Year Gill & Eric Strudwick keep posting the lovely photos. Thanks.
  • Just back from the Shipyard jetty. Thanks to Chris and the rest of the team for organising the interesting New Year's Day event.

    Here are couple of photos, taken when the greylag geese were flying over. 



  • Thanks to all who came along. 36 species of birds in a couple of hours. Nothing out of the ordinary but a lovely (chilly!) start to the year.....let's hope it's a good one.
  • Thanks for the warm welcome & hospitality, which made up for the chilly wind, for almost an hour. Hope all are feeling better today, and none the worse for an afternoon 'in the chiller'!
