1 (of 2) U3A Birders Further Information
When:
Friday
1:30 pm - 4:30 pm  
Frequency: alternate Fridays
Where: Various venues
Organisers: Martin Savage (Membership Secretary & Recorder), Carole Dale ( ), Alan Morton, Nicola Nowak (Secretary)
Status: Waiting list Limit: none given Email the group organisers
Description: We meet on Mondays and Fridays at fortnightly or so intervals. Each outing may last for 2-3 (max) hours, subject to weather and time of year, and usually involves a gentle stroll with considerable stops to look, listen and, wherever possible, identify what it is that we are looking at. Our interest has extended in that we now look for, and record, not only birds but also any flora and fauna that take our collective fancy. Outings can provide sightings of up to 30 bird species with exceptional counts in the low 40's. We occasionally undertake whole day, or longer, trips to reserves in other parts of the country for those who want to see birds that are not to be found on our local patch. The only requirements are: interest, binoculars, stout waterproof shoes and (occasionally) ditto clothing.
