Field Trips 2012/2013

General info

A programme of outdoor field events has been arranged in association with the RSPB local members' group and the Lancashire Wildlife Trust (including the Morecambe Bay Wealth of Wildlife project).

Stout footwear, warm clothing and packed lunches are recommended for the full-day field outings.

Need a lift?

If any LDBWS members need transport to any of the outings organised by/with the RSPB group, please contact Eileen Harrison on 01524 412349. She will try to arrange a lift, provided she is given at least a week's notice. All are welcome, especially new or inexperienced bird-watchers.

If you need transport to any LDBWS outings organised with the other partners, please contact Pete Marsh (LDBWS secretary) on 07532433043 or PMrsh123@aol.com.

Inclement weather & possible cancellations

If there is doubt as to whether an RSPB-organised event will be held due to weather conditions, please ring 01524 65211 on the previous evening prior to 9pm. The leader will have decided by then whether the forecasted conditions are suitable.

Thanks go to Pete Crooks for today's header photo of Aldcliffe. If you have a suitable picture of a local birding spot, why not send it to the webmaster, at andymccafferty@gmail.com? I need to resize (and if necessary crop) pictures to make them 600x130 pixels, so ideally send it at that size (definitely not smaller).
