Taking wing in heart of Brum.
A team from the Royal Society for Protection of Birds is taking enthusiasts on a discovery tour every Wednesday lunchtime from Victoria Square at 1.15pm.
Recent walks have discovered a mistle thrush in St Phillip's Square and a black redstart in St Paul's Square, along with a nesting pair of grey wagtail on the canalside below the BT Tower.
Charlotte Eva, one of the RSPB coordinators, said: "All too often, people ignore their natural surroundings and busy themselves without really appreciating the wildlife found all around.
"These walks provide the perfect combination of exercise and entertainment." The Health to Nature walks, which start from underneath the statue of Queen Victoria, aim to give office workers the opportunity to stretch their legs over 45 minutes, along with the chance for people to discover what diverse wildlife exists within the concrete jungle of the city.
