Bird Watching

Lockdown easing

As the country cautiously moves forward and pandemic restrictions are eased, many of our groups will turn their attention to how and when our members can safely resume face-to-face meetings.

The following must be borne in mind:

Any dates for face-to-face meetings, events and trips are provisional and based on our understanding of the UK Government’s plan to gradually ease pandemic restrictions. As such they are subject to change. Please ensure you have the latest information from your convenor or organiser.

Any member who is feeling ill, displaying COVID-19 symptoms or has received a positive test result in the past 10 days must NOT participate.

Venue and day/time: This is an enthusiastic group which meets at 10.15am in the car park at the back of St Mark’s Church in Worsley on alternate Mondays, travelling to venues usually decided by members.

The accent in the winter months is on sites nearer to home and possibly with a place to get a midday meal.

Members almost always use their own transport with car sharing to accommodate those without a car.
