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 delighted 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.
Those wishing to participate on outings must contact the leader of the day to register. Time and place of meet will then be given. Otherwise, email Mary Galloway or phone 07598 320978. Please car share responsibly. Weekend excursions are full day, Thursdays are usually mornings only.
