London Rivers Week 2024: Deptford Creek Bird Survey

June 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the Creekside Discovery Centre as they survey the birdlife of the Deptford Creek in South East London. We will meet at Creekside Discovery Centre and then start surveying at the southern end of the Creek from land and make our way north to where the Creek meets the Thames.

Whether you are an expert or a complete beginner, this will be a chance to get outdoors and explore the wildlife on your doorstep.

What to expect:

– a guided bird walk recording the birds we see and hear at fixed points during the walk

– help with identifying birds visually and by birdsong

This activity is part of a series of regular bird surveys. By joining recurring survey activities, you will better understand seasonal cycles and improve your ID skills.

What to bring:

If you own a pair of binoculars and ID guides/books, please bring them along. We have a limited number of binoculars you can borrow on the day.

Meeting point:

We will meet at Creekside Discovery Centre – 14 Creekside, Deptford, SE8 4SA.

Prebooking is essential. Book now to confirm your place. If you have to cancel your place for any reason, please get in touch via

All ages can join the Deptford Creek bird surveys. For everyone aged 15 and under, we ask that a parent/ guardian attend with them.
