John Grant is a retired journalist. He worked for the East Anglian Daily Times for 44 years, as a reporter, a sub-editor and, for several years before his retirement, as Environment Correspondent. A lifelong birdwatcher and conservationist, John is currently serving his second term as President of the 400-strong Suffolk Bird Group. He leads bird tours for a variety of organisations and was a volunteer at RSPB Minsmere for many years, acting as a tour guide. Having served two terms as a member of the Suffolk Ornithological Records Committee, John currently spends most of his spare time on his local patch – he lives virtually adjacent to RSPB Minsmere…a reserve on which he has seen no less than 311 species in a love affair with the site that began in 1975 and shows no sign of cooling! Join him for a day walking round the Wakelyns agroforestry hedges and tree lines spotting and learning about the rich diversity of bird life we have the pleasure to host here.
Each day will start at 8.00 am, to get the best of the birds, with a lunch break – with a delicious lunch from Henrietta Inman at the Wakelyns Bakery included. £50 per person, or £25 for people on low incomes. Morning coffee and lunch included.
