Join the Lee Valley Ranger Team and take a look at the birds that have migrated to the River Lee County Park for the winter. There should be plenty of winter duck to see such as Pochard or Teal. You may catch sight of the rare Bittern or hear Water Rails squealing from the reedbeds. They may be plenty of winter gulls around and Cormorants competing with the anglers.
