January and February News 2015

In changes to our published programme we welcome Richard Bashford and Jonathon Forgham to "The Settlement", on Friday 9 January and Friday 6 February respectively. Richard, who runs the RSPB's "Big Garden Birdwatch", will be talking about why gardens are so important for many of our bird species, whilst Jonathon will be presenting a slide show featuring the stunning birds and other wildlife of Sri Lanka. Meanwhile our outdoor meetings take us to RSPB Fen Drayton and WWT Welney, for a feast of water birds and swans, on Sunday 18 January and to RSPB Rainham Marshes, where a wide selection of wildfowl and waders, together with both water pipits and rock pipits (along the banks of the Thames) should all be encountered, on Sunday 15 February. Incidentally, the "Big Garden Birdwatch" will occur on the weekend of 24-25 January. Information on how to participate can be found on the main RSPB web site.
