Events

Unless otherwise specified, you do not need to be a member of the RSPB (or the local group) to join us on our events, and birdwatching experience is not necessary. If you have any questions please call the contact number shown with the event details.

Field trips take place on Sundays and midweek and are suitable for all ages whether you're an experienced birder or just learning. There is no charge. Please bring warm and waterproof clothing, stout footwear and suitable refreshments, as well as binoculars if you have them.
In the event of bad weather, contact the leader or one of the organisers to confirm that it is going ahead. If you intend to leave before the end, make sure the leader knows.

Indoor Meetings usually last 2-2 hours with a short break mid way for refreshments and networking with like minded people.
