Programs for May on the Water Walkway

 

In May, the walkway is open from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m. On the special days, special programs await the visitors. May is the month of our breeding birds: family bonds, chick rearing and all that jazz! On our guided tours, visitors can familiarize themselves with conscientious parents,  faithful mates and cuckolds, and other interesting facts.

1-3 May        Bird ringing festival

All three days are packed with fun programs from free guided tours to colouring pictures of our nesting birds and handicraft workshops. During the guided tours, participants can use their binoculars to gain insight into the family lives of our songbirds building their nests in the boxes or the swans incubating their eggs.

 

On Saturday there is an opportunity to witness or even join in the bird ringing activities. The birds entangled in the fine-mesh mist nets are individually marked by a ring and the lead ringer tells the audience about bird migration and the tricks of ornithological research. Participants can have close-up views of the netted birds and they can hand-release them after processing (measuring and recording their data).

9-10 May      International day of birds and trees

Free guided tours focusing on the family bonds and chick rearing of birds, complemented with a bird ringing display on Sunday. The Nimfea Nature Conservation Society presents itself with brochures, posters and other publications as well as with exciting board games, quizzes and memory games for all age groups.

23-25 May Pentecost bird ringing

Free guided tours focusing on the family bonds and chick rearing of birds, complemented with a bird ringing display on Monday. The birds entangled in the fine-mesh mist nets are individually marked by a ring and the lead ringer tells the audience about bird migration and the tricks of ornithological research. Participants can have close-up views of the netted birds and they can hand-release them after processing (measuring and recording their data).
