Field Meetings

Field meetings are open to members and non-members alike.

Field Meetings 2021

You do not have to be a bird club member to come along although members get priority with non-members initially being placed on the reserve list.

Here is some feedback from a recent trip “we learnt such a lot but also everyone was so friendly & we had some lovely chats, sharing suggestions of places to visit, stories of bird related holidays & even book recommendations.  We would love to join up to the Club

These field trips are subject to the Covid-19 restrictions allowing groups of 30 to meet.  Attendance on a field trip is only possible if you are allocated one of the available places so please apply for a place by emailing Ed Hilton, the Field Meetings Officer (ku.gro.bulcdribyerrusnull@sgniteemdleif). Please state how many places you want to book and supply a contact number. It would be helpful if you could also provide your mobile number. Alternatively you can phone Ed (07793 025503).
