JD Swann at the Exbury Egg

Yesterday the Eggman spent an afternoon in the company of ornithological investigator JD Swann in the Exbury Egg at the Lakeside Centre, for ‘Thamesmead’s Favourite Beaks’ – the first of a series of interactive workshops asking ‘What are the characteristics of the typical Thamesmead bird?’ Visitors had an enjoyable time voting for their favourite beak, head, neck, body, wings, tail feathers, legs and feet and then made collages from their images. Guests will be welcome again on Saturday 24 & 31 August and Sunday 8 September from 12pm to 6pm.
