This is a very relaxed group that meets on the first Tuesday of the month (except August), regardless of the weather, at a variety of sites both in the county and sometimes a little further afield. It is essential that members have binoculars (a pair can be loaned to new members) and the leader normally carries a telescope. Meetings usually last for 2-2½ hours with walks up to 2 miles but shorter options are always possible - walking boots are recommended. Car sharing can be arranged for trips out of the county and at some venues parking and/or reserve entrance fees may apply. Interesting birds seen at previous meetings include waxwing, garganey, smew, great white egret, black tern, Cetti's warbler and Iceland gull.
For further information please contact the group leader via the contact page.
This season’s programme again focuses on the excellent birdwatching in the Nene valley and includes the newly opened Rushden Lakes. We have included a few trips to locations a little further afield including Tring reservoirs, Rutland Water, Stanford Reservoir and Little Paxton Pits (Cambs).
