Bird Club - come and join us!

If you have never given birdwatching a try do come along on the first Saturday of the month (meeting in the car park at 8am from April to October; slightly later at 8.30 am from November to March).

Membership is very informal–– just turn up and enjoy the birding walk. It is a healthy way of getting fresh air and exercise, and de-stressing while learning about birds.

We welcome new members of any age from beginners to life-time bird watchers. Sorry, no dogs

The next Bird Club walk will be on Saturday 4th May 2019.

The next meeting is due on Saturday 4th May: meet in the car park at 8am (note the earlier time for the 'Summer' season); we walk for about 2 hours. If the forecast is bad, it may be delayed to the following week - follow us on Twitter for the latest updates.  All welcome, sorry no dogs.
