Have a 'tree-mendous' time with the RSPB this autumn

IN celebration of National Tree Week, the team at RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands nature reserve, near Neston is encouraging visitors to come and take a closer look in their woods, to discover more about the trees and the wildlife that makes its home there.

Burton Mere Wetlands is best known for its significant wetland and the wildlife it supports, but there is an impressive area of ancient woodland on the nature reserve too. The RSPB team manage the wood for a variety of natural wonders. In the spring it boasts a superb bluebell carpet and a chorus of birdsong, and at this time of year it displays a stunning array of autumn colours.

Dan Trotman, Visitor Experience Manager for the RSPB Dee Estuary nature reserve, said:- "Trees play a huge role in maintaining the health and stability of our surroundings, by cleaning air and retaining water to reduce flooding, but their importance for nature to thrive is just as great. Trees support a whole range of wildlife, from insects to birds and certain mammals, especially bats. Perhaps one of the least recognised are fungi, some of which rely on a special mutually beneficial relationship with trees to survive. We want visitors to come along and find out just how magical our woodland is."

The 'Tree-mendous Trees' guided walk takes place, on Sunday, 26 November 2017, from 10am to 12 noon and costs ₤8 per person (₤6.50 for RSPB members).

Participants will gain tips on identifying trees without their leaves and explore this 'in-tree-guing' environment to learn more about the creatures that call it home. A reasonable level of fitness is required and booking is essential by phoning 0151 353 8478 or emailing
