First a reminder about my talk on the Brazilian Pantanal tomorrow [Tues 3rd] eve. All details re venue under ‘Events’, ‘Indoor meetings’.
Second, there’s a field trip next weekend on Sunday, 8th March when we will visit the Forest of Dean. The aim is to see Goshawks from the New Fancy View viewpoint overlooking the forest canopy, and to find Hawfinch, and there’s also a Great Grey Shrike in the area too. Mandarin Ducks and Cannop Ponds and also Marsh Tit and other passerines.I plan to leave Cardiff promptly at 8 a.m., picking up at St Margaret’s Road in time for a departure at that time, for anyone who wants a lift. We try to encourage car sharing if possible. Some areas there could be quite muddy so come suitably shod. Please let me know if you intend coming. The first location will be New Fancy View where there’s a gravel car park, not far north of Parkend. Click here for a map. Please let me know if you’re coming and whether you will be at St Margaret’s Road. A map for that is on the web site under ‘Events’, ‘Field Trips’. John Wilson
