Are you interested in birdwatching? This new group will give an opportunity to visit and explore our local bird reserves, such as WWT Brandon Marsh, RSPB Middleton, Marsh Lane NR and WMBC Ladywalk.
Members will be able to enjoy identifying and observing birds in the company of a small group; and hopefully by sharing our knowledge we will all improve our bird watching skills!
Members will need to travel to bird reserves under their own steam, or by car sharing, and some of the walking may require stout footwear. Because of limited parking facilities and the availability of hides at the reserves, the group will be limited to 810 people for each visit.
We will aim to meet at a venue once a month, on a Monday or Thursday morning, and expect to spend 2 to 4 hours bird watching (depending on the size of the reserve). Trips further afield can be arranged if people are willing to travel.
