Field trip – Whiteford Pt, Gower

Just a heads up that there’s a field trip next week, on Thurs 10th Feb, to Whiteford Point on N Gower. The plan is to meet at the Cwm Ivy car parking field at 09:30 – timing to allow us to get out to the point without rushing, with the tide nearly high, but still rising [approx high at 12:53]. We would hope to also visit Llanridian Marsh at dusk, hoping for Harriers & Owls. Be aware that this is quite a long and arduous walk, the outer stretch possibly being quite muddy. The car park is at the top of a steep tarmac hill which you have to climb on return. Whiteford Point provides the possibility of seeing divers, rarer grebes, Eider, Geese & waders. As always please email me if you intend to come [unless you’ve already done so, in which case you’re on the list]. Here’s a link to a map of the meet point:
