It is anticipated that visits will last between 2-3hrs. subject to sightings and weather conditions. Group members should bring binoculars/telescopes and wear suitable footwear/clothing for the terrain and weather conditions. Whilst birdwatching is core to our meetings, we also may log other interesting flora and fauna.

On occasions, we also undertake whole day, or longer, trips to reserves in other parts of the country for those of our group who want the chance to see birds that are not to be found on our local patch.
