Venue and day/time: This is an enthusiastic group which meets at 10am on alternate Thursdays in the car park at the back of St Mark’s Church in Worsley, 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, and may bring a packed lunch.
A selection of bird photos taken by the group is available in the gallery.
Then a few paces further on we managed to find a small flotilla of Tufted Duck whilst a party of Long-Tailed Tit demanded our attention be drawn in their direction and after acquiescing to their demands, they gracefully flew across a gap to give us a brief view before the next set of trees took them into cover.Dave Steel, October 2021
