March and April News

March and April News

Tim Appleton will visit The Settlement on 4 March to update us on the progress being made by Rutland Water's ospreys. On 20 March we make a return visit to Attenborough Gravel Pits (joint trip with RSPB Stevenage LG), an impressive complex of gravel pits on the banks of the River Trent which boasts a state of the art visitor centre and colonies of tree sparrows and (now exceedingly rare in the UK) willow tits. On 1 April John Britten returns to The Settlement to show us the birdlife that can be found around the Baltic States and on 17 April we visit the flagship RSPB Minsmere reserve, a superb habitat at any time of the year but particularly so in spring, when newly returned summer visitors from Africa will be much in evidence.
