Brent Geese Day

Saturday 18 February, 10am - 2pm

‘Brent Goose Day’ celebrates the hordes of geese that spend winter in Essex. We are encouraging as many people as possible to get out and about to savour the ‘Brents’, before the birds begin their epic migration back to the Arctic to breed.

Go for a walk along our coast to see the birds - or join Trust experts at Blue House Farm or Fingringhoe Wick nature reserves, to see the Brent Geese and other winter wildlife. 

What's on

Our visitor centres organise a regular programme of events and activities for adults and families. The Trust has fourteen Local Groups across the county that organise a programme of walks and talks for local members. Non-members are welcome at these events. Booking is essential for most centre events, so make sure you call or visit the centre in advance to avoid disappointment.
