Thorpe Bay

Bird Watching

The Birdwatching Group meets on the first Friday of the month from September through to May. During this time the group visit many local nature reserves. Both the RSPB and the Essex Wildlife Trust (EWT) have reserves in our local area.

The group operates a car share system. Each visit starts from St Augustine’s Church at 9 o’clock.

The programme for the rest of this season is:-

1st March - Rainham Marshes (RSPB)
5th April - Hanningfield Reservoir (EWT)
3rd May - Wallasea Island (RSPB).

If you are interested in coming along even if it’s only for one meeting, please contact the group leader David Stratton. Full details will be sent out the weekend prior to the visit.

The group welcomes new members.

February Meeting

The intrepid Birdwatching Group chose to ignore the bad weather forecast and went ahead with their visit to the Essex Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve at Hanningfield Reservoir. They were rewarded with views of Fieldfares, Redwings, Goosander, Teal and Wigeon. Followed by some hot chocolate in the visitor centre.
