BIRDWATCHING 2 USER GROUP
GROUP LEADER: MALCOLM BOYD, Email: email@example.com
VENUE Birdwatching sites around Rutland
DATE & FREQUENCY First Wednesday and third Monday of each month
Birdwatching Two is a group formed in early 2019 to accommodate further members with a birdwatching interest. We are all amateurs with limited expertise in birdwatching, but we are keen to learn more and are now fully subscribed. However space may arise so please make contact if you wish to join us.
We have decided to meet at birdwatching sites within Rutland, twice per month, at 9.30am for approximately 2 hours.
In the present COVID situation, we have been meeting virtually as noted below.
The site for each meeting is selected and advised to members a few days before the meeting, agreeing exactly where to meet and on any car parking arrangements.
Binoculars (or telescopic cameras) and outdoor footwear and clothing are essential requirements as only a few sites have sheltered hides and most meetings involve some country walking. You are advised to bring water to drink and consider head protection on hot sunny days. On colder days please wrap up well as the hides can be cold and windy, or we may be out in the open and staying relatively still.
For further information, please contact Malcolm Boyd via the U3A messaging facility

From 17th May we are running meetings normally except that we are maintaining social distancing during the birdwatch.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 4th August at Eyebrook Reservoir
