Saturday 5th September 2020

Society Hides: Please note that all the society hides remain closed to everyone. This is due to the current coronavirus situation and restrictions (maintaining safe distances, narrow doorways and inability to deep clean surfaces regularly). This is of course inconvenient for birders but unfortunately the situation we are in.
In most cases viewing can be carried out from nearby roadside/other locations and we of course look forward to a time when the hides can be fully open to all.
