Natural History Winter Group
Natural History Winter group.
To contact Jess, the coordinator, please use the bluebird box on this page to send an email.
This is a new venture as we will be meeting on the coordinator's houseboat rather than in the Community Centre. This means that numbers are limited and there is a waiting list.
We meet on the second Friday of the month at 10 am. from October to March. We are always discovering new things at these meetings, especially as digital microscopes allow us to record what we see, although we are a little squashed on Myrtle, that has meant that it's easier to show each other what we're finding, and there's always the fantastic view out over the RSPB Adur bird reserve to look at during coffee break. Winter is when the Kingfisher comes, and the teal (the smallest British duck). redshanks, one greenshank, snipe etc. You might like to have a look at some of the things we have looked at by following the links----
In March 2018 we had an indoor meeting looking at catkins. click on exploring catkins to view a report of our exploring catkins.
