Birdwatching

We have set up a group for people who are interested in watching and learning about birds in the local area . Everyone with such an interest is welcome to join irrespective of their level of ‘birding’ experience. We are all here to learn from each other so please don’t let your lack of knowledge deter you from joining.

  • First meeting was Thursday 15th February 2024 at Clee House. When John Wren talked to us about birdwatching equipment and offered advice on what you need to be a successful birder .We also discussed plans to visit a couple of local sites
  • We will meet at Clee House periodically with most meetings being field trips to local birding sites.
  • On Friday 22nd March we will made our first field trip to the iconic WWT reserve at Slimbridge . A variety of species were seen including Kingfisher and Bittern amongst many others. A good morning had by all.
  • The April field trip was to the beautiful reserve at Kemerton Lakes .
  • In May we ventured a little further to RSPB Nagshead in the Forest of Dean.
  • Highlight was close up views of Pied Flycatcher.
  • On Thursday 20th June we would have liked to visit the local Reserve at Coombe Hill but currently the Grundon Hide is closed for flood repairs so we are searching for another local venue.
  • On Thursday 20th June we will visit RSPB Sandwell Valley as the hide at Coombe Hill is still closed after flooding.. Meet at the Station Road car park at 9.30am
