Thornbury

Bird Watching

The group has a programme of visits, on the second Monday of the month, plus a few extras. We meet in Thornbury Leisure Centre car park ready to leave at 09.30hrs. The policy is to share cars travelling to the planned destination and to share costs. Any changes in this will be notified.

One should wear suitable clothing including footwear, and are advised to bring refreshments and binoculars to meetings.

If there is any doubt about the meeting taking place, especially if the weather is poor, please check your email or phone.
Any queries email Bird Watching

U3A members are welcome by this friendly, knowledgeable group. Levels of knowledge are not important but good to have enthusiasm and be part of a team. The wearing of suitable clothing and footwear is important, good to have sustenance and binoculars at field meetings. Members are responsible for their safety and welfare at these meetings.

For a report of any of the visits, where available, click on the link for the visit.
