March and April News for 2013

March and April News for 2013

On Friday 1 March Chris Gooddie will be visiting "The Settlement" to give us a talk entitled "The Jewel Hunter", which describes his quest to see all of the world's 32 species of pitta bird, and the scrapes he got into along the way: this should make for a fascinating evening! We visit RSPB Snettisham on the North Norfolk coast on 17 March. Snettisham is an excellent place from which to view the hundreds of thousands of migratory geese, wildfowl, waders and raptors that use The Wash as a food-rich wintering ground.

On Friday 12 April (note: this is the second Friday of the month!) Graham Goodall will be visiting us to give a talk entitled "Wildlife of the Scottish Highlands and Inner Hebrides", in which he will show us some of the fantastic wildlife to be found around the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. On Sunday 21 April we will be joining RSPB Stevenage Local Group for a coach visit to Rye Harbour on the Sussex coast, where we will hope to see both returning summer visitors and passage migrants.

We will have a programme of spring morning and evening trips to local sites in May and June: keep an eye on the "Events" page for further details.
