The Big Winter Feed 2019

Robin sat on a branch

Stockings for Sparrows, Starlings and Swans! We are back by popular demand!

Join the Wild Wednesday Team at Danbury Country Park to escape the commercialism of Christmas and all the madness that entails.

Bring some Wild Bird food and follow a trail of bird fact and jokes around Danbury Country Park filling the 'birds stockings' as you go.

When you have completed the trail join 'The Wild Wednesday Team' around a campfire for a hot drink and a bit of campfire culture....... Chatting, making and doing etc. So bring your mugs, your marshmallows, your knitting, whatever takes your fancy!

We will have a donation bucket out - any donations will go back into park funds to keep events such as Wild Wednesday running. Any donations we receive will be announced on Explore Essex Facebook page.

We will be taking the stockings down straight after the event and weighing all the bird food donations, we will announce the total weight on the Explore Essex facebook page.

Please dress warmly with strong waterproof footwear, as we will be outside.

This is a free event but parking charges will apply!

You won't meet Father Christmas, receive a gift or sweets but you will reconnect with nature and help Danbury's feathered inhabitants prepare for a long cold winter. Top up your nature and fresh air levels before the big day and get away from the frenzy that can creep up on us this time of year!
