The Bird Watching and Natural History Group arranges a monthly visit to reserves and other locations which provide good opportunities to see a wide range of birds and other wildlife. Members take turns to arrange visits but contact co-ordination is provided by Felicity Jones. Details of planned visits are usually sent to members by email, or members are contacted by telephone, and an announcement is also made at the F3A monthly meeting.

Meetings are usually on the fourth Friday each month, but the day sometimes varies to fit in with opportunities for visits to be guided.

In January we met to discuss the programme for the calendar year ahead, which gives members an opportunity to suggest visits which they can arrange, as this shares the organisation for the visits.

On 23rd February to Blashford Lakes (Felicity Jones)

On 23rd March to Radipole/Lodmore RSPB (Cliff and Janet Howard)

On 5th May (Saturday) to see Hobbies at RSPB Ham Wall (Brian Harris)
