Walks, Talks and AGM

The next RSPB New Forest Local Group indoor meeting on Wednesday, 9 May 2018 will include the AGM.  The evening meeting will commence with a presentation on the new RSPB Franchises Lodge reserve by site manager, Nick Tomalin and conclude with some members' presentations.  The meeting will start at 7.30pm at Lyndhurst Community Centre.

The next field trip is on Monday, 23 April 2018 to Durlston Country Park near Swanage where we hope to see early spider orchid and early purple orchid as well as a good range of coastal and migrant bird species.  Meet at the visitor centre at grid ref SZ 031 773 at 10.00 am.  The cliff walk is steep in places.

Having cancelled the planned trip to Portland Bill on 29 March 2018 due to the atrocious weather, this visit has been rescheduled by popular request for Tuesday 1 May 2018. Meet at Cheyne Weares car park (SY 693 705) at 10.00am. As both field trips are a considerable distance, please lift share wherever possible.
