The RSPB has launched the Breakfast Birdwatch:- https://www.rspb.org.uk/about-the-rspb/about-us/media-centre/press-releases/rspbs-breakfast-birdwatch/

They are asking early risers to share pictures of their daily dose of nature online, between 8am and 9am, every Monday to Friday. Simply grab a cup of tea and take a photo of the birds you can see, either through your window or in your garden – then share your wildlife findings on social media using the hashtag #BreakfastBirdwatch. Whether you've spotted a red-breasted robin perching on your garden fence or a striking wren on your morning dog walk, uploading what you spot this spring will be sure to bring a smile to many faces across the UK.

Closure due to Coronavirus

Regrettably the club is closed until the coronavirus outbreak is over.

See you all again in hopefully the not too distant future.

Keep well and busy with our isolation corner and ad hoc puzzles and quizzes.

All contributions welcome.
