We've started the group by arranging visits to places on the island and further afield. Instead of picking a fixed day in each month, the dates and times of each visit are determined by availability of people with relevant expertise, and the tides. Over the next few months we’ll be: bird spotting, looking for wildflowers, exploring seashore plants and animals, and finding fungi.
We’ll set up more visits when we have a better idea of what group members want to do.
The group is open to all members. The nature of the group means that we might have to postpone or cancel some events because of bad weather, so we encourage anyone interested to add their name to our email list. You can do that by contacting Andy Henderson
If you have any expertise to contribute, please let us know. Even if you are 'only' an enthusiastic amateur we’d all value assistance in making more of our birds and wildlife.
