Wells

Bird Watching

LeaderJean M.
Meeting pattern4th Tuesday, time and venue varies.
Venuevaries

We meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month except December as that usually coincides with Christmas week. Most of our walks are morning only (arriving back in Wells by 1 pm or soon after) although 2 or 3 times a year we have an all day walk to enable us to visit sites further afield. Normally we meet in Ash Lane for car sharing at 8.30am although that is not possible at the moment so details of the meeting place are notified in advance and we all drive separately. We walk on average about 3 or 4 miles each meeting.

The object of the group is to increase our knowledge of birds and our identification skills by sight and sound so you don't need to be an ornithologist to join.
