Sunday 10th February 2019. Farlington Marshes (Near Portsmouth).
Meet at the entrance to the Nature Reserve (Grid Ref SU680044) at 10am. This will be an all day trip and all are welcome to attend. For car parking a track leads (sharp left) off the roundabout on the south side between the A27 and the A2030 (Southsea road) exits and runs parallel to the A27 towards Farlington Marshes. Please wrap up warmly as there is no shelter from the wind. There are no toilet facilities either.
