Group Leader's News November 2021

Kevin Sawford delivered an excellent talk at 'The Settlement' on the 5th, taking us through the seasons in his home county of Suffolk. Kevin is a professional wildlife photographer, and the quality of his images was stunning. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the coach again for our 21 November trip to RSPB Frampton Marsh due to lack of numbers - a situation caused by several Covid-19 related reasons. It looks increasingly unlikely that we will be able to run any coach trips this season, at least until spring 2022. Nevertheless, 13 of us made it to Frampton on the day, with highlights including pink-footed and brent geese, eight species of wader, peregrine and a very active merlin. See my trip report for more details. Our next indoor meeting will be on 3 December at 'The Settlement', whilst our next outdoor meeting is an 'own transport' trip to Stockers Lake, near Rickmansworth, on 12 December. We will shortly be discussing what to do about forthcoming outdoor meetings at a committee meeting: look out for further news here and also check out our 'Events' page for updates to the programme - Martin.
