Birdwatching

Leader: Les Chandler
Times: To be announced

The aim of the Settle U3A Birdwatching Group is to give members the opportunity to enjoy the experience of looking for birds, both locally and further afield.

Enjoyment is the Group's primary objective but it's hoped that, at the same time members will develop both their understanding of how birds live and their skills in identifying individual species.

If you are interested in birds or just enjoy watching them this is the Group for you.

James Bray, the Project Manager of the RSPB's "Birds of Prey in Bowland" project, has agreed to deliver a talk at our meeting on Tuesday 13 November 2018 - 10 am to 11.30 am in the Castleberg Room at Victoria Hall. As well as explaining the objectives of the project, and its achievements so far, James will discuss with us how our group could play an active role in helping to protect Bowland's Hen Harriers, Merlins, Peregrines and Short-eared Owls. Exciting or what!?

 

Programme

The Group's first meeting will be at the Malham Tarn Estate on Tuesday 11 September 2018. We're assembling at the Rugby Club Car Park at 9.30 am that day with a view to organising car shares to take us up to Malham Tarn. Once there we'll discuss and agree the programme of activities for the coming year and then have a walk around the estate to sample its varied and exciting birdlife.
