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.

These field trips are subject to the Covid-19 restrictions allowing small groups of 6 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 an emergency contact number. Alternatively you can phone Ed (07793 025503).
