The objectives of the group are to visit local areas for birding. We usually see about 90 bird species during the year, including wintering species, local breeding summer visitors, and migrants passing through. Members of the Group share identification tips; learn to identify birds by song and discuss the observed bird behaviour. The objective is to help members improve their birding skills, whether in the garden or, for example, on holiday. Please contact either of the leaders if you wish to join the group. The Group meets 11 times a year, in the morning on the first Thursday of the month. The meetings are outdoors, at locations generally close to Oundle. The visits usually involve a walk of about two miles, on level ground, though it may sometimes be muddy!
Members are expected to have binoculars.
