We look forward to welcoming you to any of our meetings.  We will continue to do our best to keep you updated on our programme & activities together with any updates to our web site

Feeding Kestrel

This photo of a feeding Kestrel was taken by Linda Witton while we were at Farlington Marshes, Portsmouth on a 3 day trip to the South Coast.

A few of our members like taking photos.  If you find this of interest please contact us for further details or just to chat.

 

Field Trips

Field Trips are a regular feature of our activities many being local but a couple of times a year we go further afield for a few days residential to places such as Titchwell in North Norfolk, Minsmere in Suffolk, Portland Bill  or North Kent Marshes.  We had hoped to go to Exmouth this year 2020 but Covid intervened
