April News

April News

Andy Warren will be visiting "The Settlement" for the first time on Friday April 4th to tell us about the life of one of our rarest breeding birds, the roseate tern, in a talk called (you guessed it!) "one good tern desrves another". All are welcome, visitors pay £2.00 admission.

On Sunday April 20th we visit one of the UK's best-known reserves, Cley NWT, at an exciting time of the year as summer visitors stream into the country (and many of them head straight to Cley!). We will be looking out for booming bitterns, bearded tits and marsh harriers, all of which breed at Cley. Further spice may be added to the day by the arrival of scarce passage migrants and waders and we will all be able to enjoy the facilities of Cley's wonderful new visitor centre!

March News

We welcome Peter Robinson to "The Settlement" on Friday 7th. Peter takes us behind the scenes to show us how the TV series "Britain Goes Wild" was made, in a talk entitled "Going wild in Devon".

On Sunday 16th we head for the south coast to visit the attractive Titchfield Haven nature reserve. Our visit is timed to coincide with the arrival of the first summer visitors and we will be looking for rare grebes and divers on the sea. This reserve is a stronghold of one of our few resident warblers, the Cettis warbler. For more information about the reserve, see the link below.
