A young boy wearing a bright blue jacket looks through binoculars off into the trees in the distance.

Join us as we become bird watchers for the day, gazing out at the park with our telescopes and binoculars, hiding in the bird hide for a glimpse of birds in the park. Record what you see and then create your own bird identification book with origami birds then craft your own Peregrine from card and see if it can fly 200mph like the real thing!  

These sessions are held indoors in the Wells Suite at Chelmsford Museum. All sessions will contain taxidermy.
