Christmas Social evening 2019

Christmas Social evening 2019

This year's Christmas social took place in the Methodist church hall and was the usual enjoyable event with loads of food (we couldn't eat it all so had to take some home!). There was a raffle with lots of great prizes. Darell introduced us to a new bird identification game and devised an excellently challenging quiz. After the buffet we were treated to two shows of photos - one of Graham's birding year with some impressive rarities especially the olive-backed pipit seen at Mains of Usan (a first for Angus), and then Darell showed us photos from his and Wendy's trip to Orkney, which included shots of a storm and a Leach's petrel he'd managed to take during a ringing expedition with the local RSPB warden.
