Birdwatching and nature collective Flock Together visited WWT Arundel Wetland Centre in West Sussex on Sunday 3 September for a field trip which took place under bright blue skies and late summer sunshine.
Flock Together members were joined by WWT ambassadors Ollie Olanipekun (Founder/CEO of Flock Together) and Wildlife Director, Nadeem Perera, for a birdwatching walk amongst the centre’s beautiful reedbeds, wet woodland and lagoons, with a chance to experience the site’s famous boat safari where they spotted amazing wetland wildlife from the water.
The trip was organised as part of WWT’s partnership with Flock Together.
Visiting a site outside the London area and being able to experience its local wildlife and wetlands has provided something really different from our usual trips and as a group, we’ve got so much out of it.
The majority of our members are based in London and the cost of train travel prevents us from being able to spread our wings and visit places outside the capital, so we’ve really appreciated the support from WWT in making this accessible for all our members.
Pat Warren, Marketing Manager at the Arundel site added:
It was a real honour to host Flock Together and be able to share our beautiful wetlands and grounds with a group who are so clearly passionate about birding and the natural world – I’m so pleased they chose to visit beautiful Arundel.
As part of the trip, Flock Together did a ‘takeover’ of WWT’s Instagram channel, providing a video diary of their day and giving WWT followers the chance to meet its ambassadors and get a real sense of the energy, joy and passion of a Flock Together walk.
