Liability Disclaimer

Members should ensure that they wear suitable footwear and clothing for fieldtrips. They should also note that whilst all reasonable care will be taken, the officers, committee and field trips leaders accept no responsibility for loss, damage, injury or fatality, howsoever suffered during the course of field trips, holidays, indoor and outdoor activities. All involvement in society activities are taken at your own risk.

Where possible we share cars for fieldtrips and if you haven’t got a car, you can arrange to go with someone else. Directions to local birding areas can be found on the birding sites page if you would rather make your own way there.

If anyone has a special site or bird that they would like including in future programmes then please make it known to the organiser - if we don’t go there, it’s probably because you haven’t asked!
