We reassemble on friday September 5th at "The Settlement" in Letchworth for the first of a new season of indoor meetings. Our first speaker is one of our members, Alan Draper. Alan specialises in getting very close to his subjects to photograph them, and the title of his talk is "Patterns of Nature".

On September 21st we visit RSPB Titchwell Marsh reserve, going by coach. Titchwell is a fantastic place to get close up to waders, many of which will be migrating back from their arctic breeding grounds: we may see as many as 20 species at this time of year. There is lots else to enjoy at Titchwell, and if you get tired of bird-watching there is always a beautiful beach to walk along (but look out for gannets, skuas, divers and scoters out at sea!).
