There are currently four Birdwatching Groups with about fifteen members in each group
The Aims and Objects of Bird Watching Groups are to provide opportunities to visit bird reserves and habitats, locally and elsewhere as a group, sometimes with local guides; to learn informally from each other (as well as from guides) how to identify different species.
Approximately ten outings are arranged yearly, travelling in own cars, with other group members, or by bus; with days planned to include time and facilities for lunch or refreshments.
Dates and travel arrangements are agreed, after discussion, by phone or e-mail.
