29th and 30th January 2018: Macclesfield Children’s Centres at Ash Grove and Broken Cross Big Schools Birdwatch

Families were introduced to a selection of toy singing birds so that they could learn how to identify some of our most familiar garden visitors. There was also an opportunity for even the youngest birdwatchers to get hands-on using binoculars.
