Sunday 13th MayIdle Valley Nature Reserve BIG BIRD DAYThis now annual event in the club's calendar will once again take place within the recording area. All of our committee members will be present on site throughout the morning and afternoon so please try and get down for as long as you can to support this event. We will plan to have a meet up at the Rural Learning Centre at 1:00pm to plan the afternoon's target birds and to chat about our sightings up to lunchtime. A fun day out for all birder's from beginner's to experts! Last year we logged 111 species in total, can we beat it this year??


Saturday 26th-Sunday 27th May - Farne Islands and Northumberland coastThis weekend trip will leave Retford at 5:00am on the Saturday and returning around mid-evening on the Sunday. so far 6 places have been booked but if anyone is still interested there are places still available. Weather permitting we will go to the Farne Islands on the Saturday leaving Seahouses at 10:00am and returning at 4:00pm. Overnight accommodation will need to be booked independently in Seahouses if you want to go. The Sunday will be spent birding along the coast primarily looking for any rare or scarce birds that may be around. This itinerary may be the opposite way round if the weather is poor on the Saturday. There are potentially 2 places free in the two cars that are already travelling.
