Mid-Nene Celebrates its 40th year in style!

Mid-Nene Celebrates its 40th year in style!

The Mid-Nene Local Branch celebrated its 40th year in style. The Group Leader, Ian Wrisdale, handed to Colin Wilkinson RSPB a cheque for £2,000 for the "Birds without Borders" appeal for research into the decline of our summer migrants. This was followed by a thought provoking and entertaining talk by David Lindo - also known as "The Urban Birder". David told a packed hall how he became interested in bird watching, the countries and their capital cities he had visited and the variety of birds seen there, and finally about his own "patch" at Wormwood Scrubs. His talk was followed by a supper of cheese, pate and wine. A very fitting evening for such a memorable occasion.

Well this male blackcap couldn't have gone to a warmer climate for the winter. He was spotted in a garden in Thrapston first week in February!
