Hawfinches at Rufford Saturday 19th January 2019
Meet in the main car park from just before 8am. Turn up and stay for as long as you like.
We will be scanning the trees from the car park and there will be a lot of standing around, so wrap up warm. There is also the option of having a walk around to see what else is about once we have seen the Hawfinches.
Toilets and café on site.
This is the same day as the Hoveringham Gull roost—why not make it a day of birding in the county?
Hoveringham Gull Watch Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th January 2019
The Hoveringham roost offers a good opportunity to see some of our rare winter gulls such as Glaucous, Iceland, Mediterranean and Caspian Gulls. Although they can never be guaranteed, mid-January is a proven time for sightings of these species.
Experienced observers will be on hand from 2:30pm to assist with locating and identifying any birds. Gull watching can be extremely cold and observers are advised to wrap up warm.
Cotham Landfill was due to close this year but remains open at this time. It is due to close at some point so this could be the last opportunity to experience this impressive gull roost. Full details will be provided when registering your interest.
Please contact Samantha at email@example.com to book a place on any of these walks.
There will be a £3 charge for non-members for all events.
Location: Idle Valley, North Road, Retford, Nottinghamshire, DN22 8RQ.
Date Friday 7 December 2018.
Time 7.30-10pm. Doors open 6.30pm.
About the event Conservationist Ruth Tingay will discuss the ongoing issues surrounding raptor persecution in Scotland and beyond. Why are raptors being killed, by whom, and how do we go about stopping it? Ruth is a conservationist and researcher and she also writes the blog @ReptorPersScot.
An Evening with Ruth Tingay includes a talk, Q&A session, and a chance to meet Ruth. There will also be time for a spot of tea and cake in our cafe.
