At Litfest 2021 we were thrilled to be joined by two writers who both have had a lifelong fascination with birds – Sheffield University professor Tim Birkhead and prize-winning poet Paul Farley at the Talking About Birds event, which began with a short RSPB film from local nature reserve Leighton Moss, introduced by visitor experience manager Jon Carter.  As part of this event, we held a competition to identify the nine birds in the film, and we are delighted to announce that the winner is…

Judith Young!

Congratulations, Judith!

If you missed the event, you can catch up on our Youtube channel for thirty days after the event was first broadcast.

We also held another competition alongside this event, which is still running until Thursday 22nd April.  If you’re a young birdwatcher (aged 11-16) then see below for more details!
