Contact and Leader - Barbara Dunne.
Our group continues to thrive with long standing and new enthusiastic members who enjoy the thrill of bird watching, the gentle exercise and the companionship of others in the group.
We have two RSPB volunteers in the group. They guide us through the year sharing their expertise and knowledge identifying both the birds and their calls. This increases our motivation and knowledge of birds greatly.
Each month we visit a different site in the NW and on the Wirral, our favourite places being Burton Marshes and Leighton Moss. The highlight of the year is our bird watching holiday. We see many unusual and rare (to find) birds and witnessed their behaviour in rearing young, feeding, habits etc. We also see other wildlife such as deer, hare and otters.
Our meetings are the 3rd Wednesday of the month commencing at 9.30am and we enjoy a pleasurable day out in country retreats and nature reserves. We car share using the U3A system of remuneration to the driver. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Barbara Dunne for further information
