There are two outdoor trips per month over the branch outing season – a full day outing on a Saturday or Sunday and a Thursday outing. On our outdoor trips, the aim is not just to see the largest number of birds, but to find and watch and enjoy. We think the pleasure comes from birdwatching with like-minded people, learning identification skills, enjoying the splendid sights and taking delight in the unexpected find. If this whets your appetite and you feel you would enjoy these field trips, then you’d be most welcome to come along.
Meet at 9.00am (9.15am Thursdays) at Inverness Retail Park, near Burger King, or alternative time stated in the programme. We will car-share as much as possible. Please contact the secretary Kathy Bonniface at email@example.com or the trip leader for other meeting place options. Please bring a packed lunch.
