A Merry Christmas From RSPB Liverpool

A Merry Christmas From RSPB Liverpool

Dear members and blog followers,

I would like to say that 2013 has been an interesting year.

Our group continues to grow. The speakers have been excellent and thought provoking. The outdoor field trips have seen us enjoy some great spectacles, wonderful birds and nature but even better great camaraderie. The idea of hiring community transport has helped us cut down on our carbon footprint and made us a greener group. There are a few new ideas for 2014 which I hope you will all enjoy and I look forward to leading you in 2014.

The groups committee has seen a few changes but we need to continue to adapt. New technologies have given us a great way to communicate with people and help to raise the profile of RSPB Liverpool and the RSPB and our ethos. We have developed some wonderful partnerships with Mersey Ferries, Liverpool Palm House, the National Wildflower centre and others.

I'm sure you would all like to thank the committee and our helpers who support use throughout the year.

As I look forward to 2014 I wish to see the group numbers grow to over 200. On a sad note birds and nature are still struggling in our area and we must continue to support and raise fund which can be used by RSPB to create new nature reserves or build better sea defences.

I wish you all a happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

Keep BIrding.
