November and December News 2015

On Friday 6 November we are delighted to welcome Martin Davies to "The Settlement". Martin will be talking about the amazing wildlife of the Canadian Rockies: not just birds but grizzly bears, chipmunks, slipper orchids, amazing butterflies and much more besides. We hope to see you there! On Sunday 15 November we are taking a coach trip to Elmley National Nature Reserve. Situated on the Isle of Sheppey, this huge fresh water grazing marsh reserve attracts a fantastic array of wintering birds, including many species of raptor (short-eared owls a speciality) and huge numbers of waders.
In December Steve Carter will be visiting "The Settlement" on Friday 4th to talk about bird-watching in the Colne Valley, much of which is in our home county and which includes both Maple Lodge and Stockers Lake. On Sunday 13 December the latter venue will be visited in the morning as part of an "own transport" trip. For those who are interested we will go on to explore a couple of sites in the Lee Valley in the afternoon. Full details of all our meetings can be found on the "events" page of this site. We also have a new newsletter (November 2015), which can be accessed as a PDF file from this page.
