December 2019 Report: View
This group organises birdwatching activities, mostly half day trips to sites in the North West. We meet in Cheadle Hulme at 9:15, usually on a Wednesday, and car share to various locations. The group is suitable for anyone with an interest in bird watching, from the novice who has an interest in joining and learning about bird life to those more familiar with our British species.
This year we organised 10 trips to various sites in the North West including RSPB Burton Mere Wetland centre, Marbury Park, The Goyt Valley, RSPB Marshside near Southport, Cassington Water, and New Church Common.
Sometimes we have had to alter our plans on the day due to the wet and windy weather we experienced this year but each trip has been very enjoyable. We have managed to see about 25 -40 species per a trip and we try to make sure that everyone sees the bird. After each trip a report has been sent to each member listing the birds identified.
In general the trips take place on a Wednesday mid-way through the month but due to commitments of Paul and myself the date can vary. We do however try to give at least one week's notice of the next trip.
