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.

 

POSTPONED DUE TO PROBABLE STORM
WHITEFORD: Saturday 15 February 2020

Leader: Eddie Hunter (07935 212290)

A great site for slavonian grebe, red-breasted merganser, eider, great northern diver and raptors, with an excellent variety of waders and wildfowl, and the realistic chance of a locally scarce sea duck or passerine. The 2018 trip recorded a red-rumped swallow, and a previous trip found a party of snow buntings!

Meet at Cwm Ivy private carpark (honesty box suggested payment of £1), Llanmadoc (Ordnance Survey Grid Reference SS439935) at 09.00.

Ed will instead be in the South Hide at Kenfig all morning hoping for otter, bittern, and storm blown birds.. this is the hide nearest the centre..

 

 

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
