MEMBERS of the public are being invited to engage in a spot of birdwatching - from the comfort of their own homes.

Cumbria Wildlife Trust (CWT) is hosting a virtual event next month.

Sarah Dalrymple, South Walney Nature Reserve warden, will be searching for birds at high tide at the reserve on January 16, with people able to join her using laptops or smartphones.

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.

The event is taking place between 1 and 2pm. Visit ‘What’s On’ on the CWT website to book.
