BIRDWATCHING (David Hunter)
This is an informal Group for anyone with an interest in bird life whatever their level of experience. On our monthly outings we travel to areas where birds would be expected and help each other to spot, identify and learn more about them. Stout footwear and weatherproof clothing advised, and don’t forget binoculars. No dogs please.
Mostly morning outings, but two full day trips are planned. Car sharing from Eyemouth can generally be arranged.
Monthly; Friday (second) 9:30 - 12:30 (occasionally 5:00pm); Meet at Eyemouth Co-op car park or at agreed start point for the outing. Except on the all day trips, groups are limited to about twelve. If any destination is oversubscribed, a repeat visit can generally be arranged for the third or fourth Friday.
The planned programme for 2019-20 is:
Fri 11 Oct River Tweed at Union Bridge & Paxton
Fri 8 Nov Barns Ness
Fri 13 Dec Druridge Bay (All day)
