An array of colours in Autumn at WWT Arundel Wetland Centre

Written by: Elmtree Press


Autumn is a beautiful season here with leaves changing colour, transforming the site. It’s also an exciting time for us with birds migrating back from summer feeding grounds to spend winter on our lakes and in the reed beds. Then, as foliage starts to disappear from the trees, spotting smaller birds becomes easier making it a great time for beginner bird-watchers. With fewer school visitors on site, this is the perfect time of year to engage your learners with the natural world.
We offer several curriculum-linked bird-based sessions such as ‘How and why do birds migrate?’ where learners go on their very own migration, following an educational trail around the reserve, or ‘What do birds eat and how?’ where learners can investigate the array of birds at our centre.
Earlier in the season the ponds are still bursting with life making our popular ‘What lives in a pond?’ pond-dipping session excellent choices for September and October.
