Events

The RSPB Liverpool Local Group welcomes both members and non-members to all our events.

Eight indoor meetings are held during the year with a four month break during the summer months. The Indoor Meeting feature an illustrated talk on a topic of interest to those enthusiastic about wildlife issues. The talks are entertaining and informative with high quality photography.
Held on the third Monday of the month, in Mossley Hill Parish Church, (St. Mathew and St. James) at the junction of Rose Lane and Mossley Hill road. Meetings commence at 7.30pm and last about 2 hours with an interval for refreshments. Tea, coffee and soft drinks are available at the interval and this presents new members and visitors an excellent opportunity to meet existing members of the Group and to find out more about our activities. Admission charge of £2 applies, this includes a raffle ticket for the evening's prize draw.

We lead approximately 18 outdoor trips to bird sites each year. Most sites have free admission but some are dependent on membership and non-members may have to pay. Events are very seldom cancelled. If the weather is particularly poor it may be necessary for members to phone the leader in advance to check details - a phone number is given for every outdoor event. (A Cancellation email/website posting will be made whenever possible)
Unless otherwise specified, you do not need to be a member of the RSPB or a local group to join us at our events. Birdwatching experience is not necessary, as our members are always very willing ready to share their expertise with beginners. Spare Binoculars/access to telescopes usually available.
If you have any questions please call the contact number shown with the event details.
Stout footwear, warm waterproof clothes and packed lunches are recommended for field trips.
We hope that members will do their best to reduce car use by car-sharing as much as possible. Please phone at least a week before the trip if you wish to car share.

Our indoor meetings and fieldtrips are listed on our events page.

Dates with nature - Warton Crag *Remember RSPB membership card - close to RSPB Leighton Moss

Location: Warton Crag car park, Crag Rd ..Just west of Warton Village Carnforth Lancashire
Postcode: LA5 9RY (Google map)

If you have never been to or even heard of Warton Crag, it lies approximately two miles away from the visitor centre at RSPB Leighton Moss. The name 'Warton' is derived from the Old English 'weard' meaning 'watch' or 'look-out' and 'tun' meaning 'farmstead'. The word 'crag' is from the Celtic 'crug' meaning 'hill' or 'mound'. Warton Crag is most definitely a mound that you could watch or look out from. It is a limestone hill, standing at 163 metres high, making it the highest point in the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The limestone rock has been eroded to form natural cliffs, scars and outcrops. Part of it was once quarried leaving a dramatic cliff face that now provides nesting sites for ravens, jackdaws and peregrines. There are also patches of woodland up there, a summer home to willow warblers , bullfinches and blackcaps; grassland and its anthills attract green woodpeckers. A unique limestone habitat Warton Crag is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is owned and managed by four organisations including the RSPB, and LWT

There are several unusual butterflies on Warton Crag, such as the pearl-bordered fritillary, small pearl-bordered fritillary and the northern brown argus, with the rarest being the high brown fritillary.

https://www.arnsidesilverdaleaonb.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/warton_crag_reserves_guide_2018.pdf

Walking trails - Warton Crag rises steeply from the car park, so the walks are quite tough.

Access - Rocky paths and steep walks mean this reserve isn't ideal for wheelchair users or those with limited mobility.

In the more mature woodland both Green and Greater Spotted Woodpeckers can be seen along with Nuthatches and Jays.
