Sarehole Mill walking and wildlife workshop

I'm leading this Urban Walking and Wildlife workshop at Sarehole Mill Gardens, Birmingham, on the afternoon of October 8th, as part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

We'll be looking for the birds (and other wildlife) of this green corner of the second city, and writing about them and anything else we turn up along the way. It's not restricted to poetry, either - prose writers

It's a spot with a literary history, after all - Sarehole was the childhood home of JRR Tolkien, and Sarehole Mill and its terrifying (to small boys) owner turns up in his work as the Mill at Hobbiton.

One thing I should add to the information on the BLF page is that I'll have a few pairs of binoculars available to borrow on the day, if anyone needs some.
