L.O.S. Fieldtrip to St. Aidan's RSPB - Sunday 25th March 2018

Our next fieldtrip on Sunday 25th March is to the St. Aidan's RSPB nature reserve in Yorkshire, which is a newly developed part of Swillington Ings.  For those who wish to continue, there will also be the opportunity to go on to see the Red Kites at the Muddy Boots Cafe in Harewood if desired.


St. Aidan's has a range of habitats including reed beds where we may see BitternsMarsh Harriers and Black-necked Grebes as well as a number of lakes for Kingfishers, dancing Great Crested Grebes and various other types of waterfowl, and rucks for Skylarks.  There's even a chance of seeing Short-eared Owls and Peregrines in the area.


The address is: St Aidan's Nature Park, Astley Lane, Leeds LS26 8AL and you can either meet us on the car park there at around 9:15am or at Doctors Nook car park facing Leigh Library at 8:00am on the Sunday morning.

Here are a couple of useful links:
L.O.S. fieldtrips are free (unless there is an entry charge to a reserve) and everyone is welcome to come along and join us.  We usually decide on car-sharing on the morning of the trip. Bring a packed lunch and warm clothing as well as your binoculars and cameras.

What a wonderful day out it was, Bittern's booming all around us, ducks, geese and birds singing, the racket from the black-headed gulls, and then the Red Kites, wonderful!

There was significant growth in ride-sharing through 2019 and the beginning of 2020. Since the occurrence of the world-changing COVID-19 pandemic, car-sharing has taken a hit.

Many people began to opt for car-sharing as it was greener, more efficient, and an economical mode of travel. Due to the lockdown and fear of the contagion, there has been a decline in the use of traditional rented cars and services such as Uber for everyday travel.
