HIU3A: Birds & wildlife winter programme ideas?

As a visits group, the winter period gives the Birds and Wildlife group a couple of challenges:

  1. Birds and wildlife aren't as visible as in the warmer months
  2. The weather is less hospitable for humans too

So, I'm looking for ideas of where to go over the next six months, or so. It's an obvious opportunity to see some birds in local waters that we don't see at other times, and I'll be exploring the best times and places. I had also considered the possibility of a fungus walk but that could be a bit hit and miss, and would inevitably involve a visit to wooded areas with accessibility issues.

What do you think? Should we suspend activities besides occasional bird watching? Are there other winter visit possibilities? Please let me know your views.
