Nightingale singing

Update - Change to entrance fee to indoor meetings

A reminder and for anybody who missed our announcement at the AGM in April. The price of our entrance fee to our Indoor meetings has been increased to £3 pp. This small increase was necessary to help cover rising speaker and venue hire cost. We trust you'll still consider this fee as value for money. Your committee (who, don't forget, are all volunteers and give up their time happily) are committed to ensuring you have value for money, are entertained by excellent speakers, and have the knowledge that additional money raised will go to improving the services of your local group and the annual RSPB projects - our recent group donation being - £750 for Hen Harrier nest protection £750 for RSPB Reserves in the North of England.

Wirral wader festival this October 2018

Wirral wader festival this October 2018

The Wirral Wader Festival in its fourth year will be on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th October
from 12.00 (noon) to 4.00pm.

In 2017 the Wirral Wader Festival took place with no indoor venue, just the wader roost watching sites. It was decided that if at all possible this year we would return to having an indoor event.

Fortunately the Hoylake sailing club was happy to oblige and on the 27th and 28th of October they will provide space for stands for the Dee Estuary Voluntary Wardens, Cheshire Wildlife Trust, Wader Quest and the RSPB.

There will also be secondhand book sellers as well as artists and craft designers exhibiting their work. There will be children's activities taking place and the very popular Creatures in the Mud exhibition showing live what it is that waders eat in the mud as they probe for food.

Additionally, the bar will be open from noon with a real ale on tap as well as other alcoholic and soft drinks available to buy.

The outdoor events at Hoylake and Red Rocks and the wader roost cam from Hilbre Island will be as last year. See link to website for full details
