Field trip – Newton Point – Sat 27th Nov

A heads up re an upcoming trip on Saturday week, 27th Nov to Newton Point near Trecco Bay. I am away that weekend so Alan Rosney has kindly agreed to lead for me. Please let him know if you are coming – alanrosney@gmail.comThe start time will be 10 a.m. with high tide being at approx 11:34. The meet point is in Beach Road, Newton just outside, or in the Newton Beach car park – the car park address is 39 Beach Rd, Porthcawl CF36 5NH. This is a pay & display car park but we understand that the double yellow lines on Beach Road just outside, are not ‘active’ between October and May, so if there is room it is possible to park tidily there. It is about a 5 min walk from this location to Newton Point. If folk look at Google Maps there is a car park at the end of the road indicated as Trecco Bay Beach free car park, but a regular birder at this location says that this car park is randomly closed. This link shd give you a Google Maps page with the car park area showing: Beach Road runs past adjacent on your left to the church and graveyard in Newton. From the main road [Bridgend Road] take Clevis Crescent which then becomes Clevis Hill [quite narrow]. When the village green appears ahead take thed road visible ahead between the two trees. This is Beach Road. Have a good day. JDW
