Nature lovers are being invited to go birdwatching – from the top of Ely Cathedral’s tower.

The cathedral and Ely Wildspace are joining forces to hold special birdwatching tower tours on Saturday, May 31, and Sunday, June 1.

A spokeswoman for Ely Wildpsace said: “Expect thrilling fly-pasts by swifts which have been recorded reaching speeds of almost 70mph and birds of prey such as marsh harriers and kestrels, which we expect to see on hunting forays.”

The tours are being held at 7.30am, 8.30am and 9.30am on Saturday and 7.30am, 8.30am, 9.30am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm on Sunday.

The cost is £6.50 for those with binoculars and £9 for those without.

Places need to be booked by calling (01353) 660349.
