Migfest 2021 tickets selling fast
05 Aug 2021 | No. 2021-36
The Spurn Migration Festival 2021 will be held at Kilnsea, Spurn on 10-12 September and tickets for the event are selling fast.
The event, in its 8th year, has always been popular but this year it seems to be even more so. It might be that it is the first physical event in the ornithological calendar for a while, or the reputation for delivering the migration spectacle that Spurn is famous for, but with just over a month to go there are only thirty tickets left.
Rob Adams, Chair of Spurn Bird Observatory, said, “When we planned this year’s event it was with a little trepidation. We didn’t know if people were ready to attend such an event but we needn’t have worried. With only four weeks to go and only a small number of tickets left it looks like this year’s MigFest will be a sell-out, all we need are the birds and they haven’t let us down so far.”
This year’s keynote speaker is Killian Mullarney, who will talk about 50 years of bird identification. Alongside this is an exciting programme of walks, workshops and talks, and the finale of the Martin Garner Spurn Young Birder of The Year.
Don’t miss out, get your tickets at www.spurnmigfest.com while there are still some left.
