Springwatch : Ely Cathedral
SPRINGWATCH: ELY CATHEDRAL
01 June 2014
On Sunday 1 June the Ely Cathedral Tower Tours will be extra-special. All day the tower will be the focus of a spring time bird watching event. Local birdwatchers, promoting the Elywildspace, will be at the top of the tower with telescopes to help you enjoy bird eye views of Ely's wildlife.
Expect thrilling flypasts by Swifts which have been recorded reaching speeds of almost 70mph. Birds of Prey such as Marsh Harriers, Sparrowhawks, Kestrels, Buzzards and Hobby will be seen on hunting forays and commoner garden birds will be foraging and feeding young in the tree canopy beneath us.
Birdwatchers special tower tour price £6.50/person with binoculars, £9 without.
The tours will take place at 7.30am, 8.30am, 9.30am, 12noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
