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. For those who are happy to do so, we share cars and costs travelling to the planned destination. Any changes to this will be notified.

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 to this friendly, knowledgeable group. Levels of knowledge are not important but it is good to have enthusiasm and be part of a team. The wearing of suitable clothing and footwear is important. It also helps to have sustenance and binoculars at field meetings. Members are responsible for their own safety and welfare at these meetings. Pre walk information gives an idea of how long a visit, what sort of walking it is and availability or not of toilets, refreshments, and hides.

For a report of any of the visits find the link in the side bar and click on that.
