Edinburgh

Bird Watching

Bird Watching - Peripatetic
Leader: Hilary Maxfield - see Group Leaders Contact Details.
Timing: Monthly, 2nd or 4th Tuesday, 10:00am to 12:00 noon
Venue/Location: varies
Usually a morning outing, but times vary (eg to fit with tide times). The group visits various birding sites in and around Edinburgh, helping each other identify and learn more about local birds. Everyone welcome, be they beginners or experts. We go out in all weathers and some walking involved, so appropriate outerwear and footwear essential. Binoculars also useful. Usually followed by a café visit.
This is a large group and would benefit if another leader came forward so there could be two smaller groups. Help and guidance would be provided by the present leader. Contact Hilary Maxfield - see Group Leaders Contact Details.
