We generally meet twice a month (from late Sept.- May) on the first Thursday at 2pm and the fourth Wednesday at 7.30pm. The days may occasionally change so please check our programme for the dates of each meeting.

All our meetings, apart from evening meetings during the winter months, are now face-to-face. Group members pay £1.00 at the door, and non-members, always welcome, pay £3.00.

During the winter months, November, January and February, evening meetings will be online via Zoom. There is no charge to members for these meetings. Non-members are also welcome to on-line meetings as guests, but we would ask them to consider making a small donation to the RSPB. They should email to request a link and include their address in the mail.
The zoom link will be sent out the day before the meeting.
