Outdoor Meetings

Details of Field Trips are below. Please contact the leader in each case to confirm your attendance, so that we know approximately how many to expect and so we can contact you in the event of call off / a change in arrangements.

Please wear boots with ankle support, bring appropriate warm clothing, and enough food and drink to sustain you for a few hours. We do not charge for the trips, but car parking may incur a fee.

Cwm Cadlan and Garwnant: Saturday 28 March 2020

Leader: Eddie Hunter (07935 212290)

A good site to see goshawk, red kite, lesser redpoll, siskin, crossbill, and if we are lucky, a great grey shrike.

Meet at Garwnant carpark (£2.00 a car) at 09:00. There is a café and toilets at the car park. Ordnance Survey Grid Reference SO00316 13115. Post Code CF48 2HU. Map and directions HERE

Penllergaer Woods: Saturday 4 April 2020

Leader: Rob Taylor

Meet at the car park just after 09:00 so we can head off at 09:30. There is a £2 parking charge. The ground is currently muddy in places.

We will aim to see early spring migrants (chiffchaff, blackcap, willow warbler) and look for bonus species (goshawk and dipper were noted on this walk last year).

The site is less than 5 minutes from Junction 47 of the M4 and is signposted from the roundabout and A48. The main entrance is just off the A48 eastbound from J47. The post code of the site is SA49GS – albeit older Sat Navs may no recognise this (SA4 9GJ will get you there).
