A wildlife walk will give people the chance to see some rare sights of nature.

Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s Woodbridge Wildlife Group is inviting people to join its members for the Saturday afternoon walk from Shingle Street on September 8.

“At this time of year we should be able to see and identify some migrant birds and hopefully some other wildlife too,” said Phil Smith, chairman of the Woodbridge Wildlife Group.

The walk, which started at 2pm, will take place the perfect time of year, offering people a chance to see some rare sights.

Although donations to Suffolk Wildlife Trust appreciated, admission is free. Participants are advised to wear sturdy footwear and bring binoculars.
