Latest Programme News

After so much disruption caused by the pandemic, life is gradually getting back to some sort of normality. We are pleased to announce a resumption of Outdoor Trips starting in September. Indoor Meetings are still being developed and details will be announced at a later date.

The Events section of this website carries details of planned events up until the end of 2021, but please be aware the RSPB is updating data bases and it may not be possible to show any changes due to restrictions in force at that time.

Please refer to this Latest Programme News posting for updates.
