Group Leader:- Erica.
Meetings take place:- Third or fourth Monday each month
When:- Usually 2.00 p.m
Where:- For outdoor events we usually meet at The Hub and share cars from there. Sometimes we meet at Erica's house or other members' homes.
The aim of the group is to look at local wildlife. We usually go for short walks, often in nature reserves. We try to find and roughly identify flowers, fungi, insects, other invertebrates, mammals and any passing birds.
We try to increase our knowledge of local wildlife. Our walks are usually quite short as some of our members are less mobile than they used to be. I try to indicate in the programme how hard the walking will be.
We usually finish with tea at a café or a member's home.
The first 3 meetings will be indoor meetings at Erica's starting at 2pm.
One will be disecting owl pellets and the other two will be lectures.
Indoor meetings will be at my house. The other meetings we usually meet at The Hub to car share.
I will send out details about a week before each meeting.
