RSPB Walk with Kirk Newsholme

On World Mental Health Day (10th October), Joanna and Theo from the RSPB very kindly led 10 people from Kirk Newsholme on a nature walk.  Little did they know that only metres from their office was a path that led into the woods, where they saw beautiful autumn colours and vast expanses of green space.  There were not as many birds as Joanna thought there might be from previous walks, however this did not detract from the enjoyment of hearing Robins, Blackbirds, Great Tits, Blue Tits and Wrens and seeing a Red Kite which was so distinctive with its forked tail. The group could hear the birds high up in the trees, where they had moved in order to find food as the weather had turned colder.

It was a beautiful clear day, and they were extremely lucky having had large amounts of rainfall in the weeks surrounding.  The team even took litter pickers and collected 2 bags of rubbish on our travels, such a beautiful space to enjoy, so it was nice to make it clean again for the next walker and wildlife to enjoy.

Kirk Newsholme would like to thank Joanna for taking the time to show them around. The whole group enjoyed a wonderful walk and enjoyed listening to facts about the wildlife and what had been spotted on previous trips. 

Why not organise a walk around Thorpe Park Leeds for you and your colleagues like Kirk Newsholme? If you’d like the details for Joanna at The RSPB, get in touch with the ParkLife team.
