The Woking Peregrine project – Saturday 16th May, Saturday 23rd May, Tuesday 26th May and Saturday 6th June (unfortunately now cancelled due to Covid 19).
Since the Peregrines started successfully nesting in Woking in 2016, the club has had a stand in the town centre on (usually) Saturdays in order to show the public the Peregrines. Using the http://www.wokingperegrines.com website allows us to watch the Peregrines using the cameras which are installed both inside the nest box and on the ledges outside. However, by the time we have the stand operating in the town centre, the young birds are often out on the ledges and so visible. It is a great site where you can see the young birds learning to fly (often calling out as they are doing so!). In 2020 the club will be in the town centre on the following dates – Saturday 16th May, Saturday 23rd May, Tuesday 26th May and Saturday 6th June.
Why not come and visit us if you are in the town centre. The stand is in Jubilee square which gives a good view of the nest box and the building where the birds roost.
Sunday 31 May 2020 – Clandon Wood Nature Reserve Bioblitz
The club will have a stand at this event. There will be wildlife walks including a birdwalk. As long as the weather is suitable some bird ringing will also be taking place.
The entrance to the nature reserve and burial ground is off the eastbound A246 just east of Guildford and the first left turn just past the crossroads near Clandon Park, map reference TQ048512, postcode GU4 7FN (GU4 7TT for older Sat Navs).
Tice’s Meadow Bioblitz – Saturday 13th June 2020
The Bioblitz is being held later this year. However, as usual, the club will have a stand at this event. There are both daytime and evening walks. Ringing (as long as the weather is suitable) also takes place for most of the event so it gives a good opportunity to see birds close-up and learn more about their distinguishing identifying features.
