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.
