Members of our Society will be present to hold the inaugural meeting of our L.O.S. Young Birders' Club, where we shall be taking young people on an number of guided walks around the bird hides and giving tips and information about simple bird identification.
This is part of our campaign to get more young people interested in birding and nature, which we have started by giving presentation at local primary schools. A page on the website has been set up for youngsters to record their sightings seen on the walks or in their local area and they can also send photographs, written reports and even artwork for inclusion on the website to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As well as the guided walks, the following activities will also taking place:
|Snowy Owl from last year's event|
- Bird of Prey demonstration
- Nestbox building and for sale
- Willow weaving demonstration
- Making apple juice with a press
- Making recycled bird feeders and fat peckers
- RSPB's Roger Hayes will be in attendance
We do hope that as many L.O.S. members as possible will be able to attend and help generate interest in the Society as well as the new L.O.S. Young Birders' Club.
