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 8–10 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.

Here's where we've been so far in 2022:
Thursday 24 February Warwickshire Wildlife Trust Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve
Thursday 24 March RSPB Middleton Lakes
Thursday 21 April WMBC Ladywalk Reserve
Monday 2 May Dawn Chorus in Lavender Hall Park (a 5am start, for anyone who wishes to join me!)
Thursday 5 May Marsh Lane (Private) Nature Reserve
Wednesday 8 June Upton Warren (near Bromsgrove)
Wednesday 6 July Attenborough reserve (near Nottingham, day trip) — Cancelled

We'll have a break over the Summer and I'll restart trips out in September 2022
