Woking Peregrines

Woking Peregrine chick, 15/05/2019, (Craig Denford)

The five chicks are still doing well and were colour-ringed yesterday. Join us in Woking’s Jubilee Square on Saturday (18th May) between 10 am and 4 pm where we hope to see both parents flying in with food. We will have a telescope looking at the ledge outside the nest area, as well as an iPad so that you can see what is happening inside the nest too. In the meantime, you can see what is happening now.

Jay at Pulborough Brooks 24/03/2019 (Sean Ellis)

The field trip to RSPB Pulborough Brooks was a great success. Sixty-five species seen in all with lots of singing Chiffchaff. Sixteen members and three non-members had a great time with many staying on to enjoy the great food at the café where it was warm enough to sit outside.
