FIELD TRIP TO VENUS POOL 27TH AUGUST

Hello all on behalf of the committee I hope you are enjoying the Summer, the next field trip will be to Venus Pool NR on 27th August starting 0900. Although this is the Nature Reserve closest to us in Shrewsbury it is still a good place to see birds, recent birds include Little Egret, Common and Green Sandpiper, Greenshank, Black Tailed Godwits, Kingfisher and many other birds. The advantage of Venus Pool is that the birds are easy to observe most of the time and for most of us the Reserve is not a great distance to travel. So we look forward seeing you on the day for what will hopefully be a great day.
