Final Indoor Meeting of 2012

Marsh Harrier
Just a quick reminder to say that tomorrow evening's (Friday 14th December) presentation talk in the Derby Room at Leigh Library is 'Sky Dancers' by ornithologist and conservation expert Keith Offord.

The 'Sky Dancers' in question are Harriers and these magnificent birds of prey are perhaps one of the most enigmatic and interesting groups of birds.

Of the eleven species of harrier in the world, Britain is host to three, Hen Harrier, Montagu's Harrier and Marsh Harrier and Keith will explain the present state of health of the populations of these three breeding species.

It's a presentation not to be missed and doors open at 7:15pm with the meeting starting at 7:30pm. This is the last meeting of 2012 and as usual everyone including non-members are welcome.

Indoor meetings will resume in the new year on 4th January 2013 with the first fieldtrip of the year being to Marshside RSPB and Hesketh Out Marsh RSPB on 13th January.  Again, everyone is welcome to bring friends and family.

Full details of these and future events are on the meetings and fieldtrips pages.
