May and June News for 2014

Our indoor meetings season concludes on Friday 2 May with a short AGM followed by Martin Johnson's talk entitled "An A-Z of British Waders". This is followed the following morning by an own transport visit to Paxton Pits. Further own transport evening visits have been arranged to Tyttenhanger Gravel Pits (14 May), Rushden Southern Green Farm (20 May), Biggleswade Common (12 June) and RSPB Lakenheath Fen and Thetford Forest (23 June): see the "Events" section for further, detailed information.

We still have two outstanding coach trips: to The New Forest on 18 May, where we hope to see Redstarts, Dartford Warblers, Pearl-bordered Fritillary butterflies and much more besides, and to RSPB Strumpshaw Fen on Sunday 15 June, where an excellent selection of breeding birds will be supplemented by orchids, dragonflies and butterflies (hopefully including swallowtail).

THE PROGRAMME FOR THE 2014-15 SEASON HAS BEEN PUBLISHED. The programme was available at the AGM and will also be available on our coach trips. However, it will not be posted out to current members, as happened in previous years. If you are currently a member and do not yet have a copy it can be viewed from this web page as a PDF document.
