Portland Bill

The next field trip of the RSPB New Forest Local Group is to Portland Bill on Thursday, 29 March 2018: meet in the Cheyne Weares car park at 10.00 am.  

Migration so far this spring has been pretty slow with cold temperatures and northerly air flows slowing things down - for the latest news of sightings from the bird observatory visit: http://www.portlandbirdobs.com/.  South west winds are forecast for Tuesday and Thursday next week, so that may help liven things up.  At the moment the forecast for Thursday is sunshine and showers, with strong winds from the south at midday - sounds like ideal sea-watching conditions!!!

So bring a packed lunch, come prepared for wet weather and a "pit stop" at the toilets at Ferrybridge is recommended as there are no facilities at Cheyne Weares, or anywhere else until we get to the Bill at lunchtime.  Please share transport if possible.
