A dawn walk on Flanders Moss NNR – International dawn chorus day

Flanders Moss NNR

It is international dawn chorus day and as people are restricted in where they can get to at the moment, the next best thing is to take a dawn walk with local artist and bird guide Darren Rees around Flanders Moss NNR. Darren will tell you a bit about this special site and will put a name to some of the bird songsters that Flanders is well known for. And all on a gorgeous morning.

Darren Rees was born in Hampshire in 1961, and he studied Mathematics at Southampton University teaching the subject for a short time before pursuing painting full time. As an artist he is self-taught. His work has attracted many awards including the Natural World and RSPB Fine Art Awards. He has also been a winner in the Swarovski/Birdwatch and BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year competitions. His first solo book Bird Impressions was greeted by much critical acclaim and was a runner up in the Natural History Book of the Year. He is a knowledgeable naturalist and travels extensively leading tours to Europe, the Americas and the Arctic.
