Events

There are still some uncertainties regarding the future of Covid restrictions. Even if all legal constraints are lifted from 19 July, it is quite likely that guidance will still remain in place and, even without that, we would still wish to operate safely in a Covid-secure manner.

We shall be observing appropriate social distancing and will not be offering to arrange shared travel. For that reason there is no need to meet at a central point in Durham City for the time being, so each outing will have its own meeting point at, or close to, our destination.

For the more distant destinations we will want to ensure that everyone who is intending to take part has reached the correct meeting point, so for the Saturday outings could you please notify your intention to attend and, if possible, provide a mobile phone number to David.Sowerbutts@dunelm.org.uk - Tel.: 0191-386 7201.

Zoom Meeting: Much Ado about Mothing by James Lowen

Location: An invitation to join the Zoom meeting will be emailed to Durham Group members nearer the time.

Non-members are welcome to join us for the meeting at no charge. Please contact Richard Cowen on the email address below if you would like a Zoom invitation.

James Lowen is an award-winning wildlife writer, a travel guide and a photographer. Inspired by an encounter with a Poplar Hawk-moth, he dedicated 2019 to a quest to understand Britain's rare and remarkable moths which is told in his book 'Much Ado About Mothing'.

Found all over the UK, moths are far from brown and boring. James will show us how they are attractive and accessible, how they can migrate and deceive us with camouflage, and how they can tell us much about the state of the nation's habitats.

Time: 7.30 pm

Our New Year Outing for 2022 will be on the first Monday of the year, which is a Bank Holiday, and provides a good opportunity to get your year's birdwatching off to a good start.
