2018 big farmland bird count

Calling all twitchers! Join Us For 1-10 Days On This Celebrated National Event

The fifth annual Big Farmland Bird Count will take place from Friday 9th to Sunday 18th February 2018.

This annual event organised by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), is an important initiative which was launched in 2014. The objective is to provide a means of recording the effect of any conversation schemes being carried out by farmers and gamekeepers on their land.

At Saling Grove we are excited to once again be supporting this important event, and welcome you to come down and join us.

You can either pop down as a day excursion, or bring your motorhome or touring caravan with you and relax in Golden Grove, our secluded park within the Saling Grove estate.

If you have a few twitcher friends who would also be interested, why not book our rally field and enjoy a couple of days with friends and like-minded people in this beautiful spot in rural Essex.

If you have an interest in the countryside and how our birds are faring, this is a great event.

Get the full information about the initiative and the results from the counts of previous years from the GWCT's website here.
