Bird Watching

Group photo from Woolston Eyes, see: Woolston Eyes Ranger Report

Convenor: Gwyn Davies, 07545 770995 – email:

Venue and 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.

Report by Ranger Dave of our recent visit to Chat Moss can be found on this link: U3A 141019 Moss Wander

Please see the Bird Watching Programme below.  

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.

To find current information, why not take a look at the RSPB website?
