Wivenhoe Watching Wildlife - Walk to Whitehouse Beach

Come and join WWW on a walk from Wivenhoe to Whitehouse Beach this coming Saturday 16 September, looking for early autumn flowers, birds and anything else we can find for you. Meet 10AM on the Shipyard Jetty, returning around 1300. It is a free event, and no need to book, just turn up. Bring binoculars if you have them, and clothing and footwear appropriate to the weather.

After that, the three final WWW event of the year will be:

6 October - AutumnWatch indoor  presentation upstairs in the Sailing Club, 1930-2200, when among other things we will present the best entries for the summer wildlife photography competition, and give you the chance to vote for the overall winner. Again it is a free event, but please book your seats by personal message on the Forum or by email to me so we know numbers expected.

13 October - moth-trapping, to coincide with National Moth Night. Time and place TBC

29 October - Autumn walk, probably through Wivenhoe Woods, looking at fungi, fruits and any last vestiges of summer. Start at 1400 for three hours or so, starting at the KGV car park.


  • Yes please,Chris, for Autumnwatch.  Definitely coming on Sat and hopefully the other dates too.
  • 2  places please Chris for autumn watch 
  • Thanks to those who came along on our walk this morning. About 20 hardy souls braved the chilly breeze (some even in shorts!) and were treated to massed ranks of avocets, black-tailed godwits and linnets; a good but fleeting kingfisher, several marsh harrier and sandwich tern fly-pasts; a stoat; an array of late-summer saltmarsh flowers, by sight and taste for many; and diverse galls, leaf-miners and fungi.
    Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did
    Chris & Glyn
