We generally meet fortnightly on Thursday morning or for a whole day. However, in winter we sometimes meet less regularly. The main interest of the group is in bird and plant identification, but recently we have widened our interest to include fungi, butterflies and moths, badgers and bats. In autumn, winter and spring we usually watch birds and during the summer months we look at plants, but also birds and other wildlife. We regularly walk round Peebles, along the Tweed and Manor Valley. Sometimes we venture further afield e.g. to St Abbs Head, Musselburgh Lagoons, Carrifran Forest. We carry books, binoculars and cameras and discuss and learn.
