We are a small group with a dedicated band of volunteers who give up their time freely for the benefit of the group. We are always on the lookout for assistance with events and help with the running of the group. If you can give just a few hours a month, to help advance the group and keep SK58 Birders moving forward- then contact any of the group organisers

March- October
Field Meeting

"Open Hide" the hide at NAPT continues to be wardened on Saturday mornings from 0800-1100 It is open for anyone to use. Come along and find out what's about - Everyone welcome!

Because of the lack of water in the scrape, wardening has been postponed.

"Post Christmas Walk" Join us as we walk off the excesses of Christmas. We'll decide on the day where we go, but usually a circular either around Anston Stones to Chesterfield Canal or Firbeck to Roche Abbey. After the morning walk we usually migrate to a local pub for a drink/ meal. Meet 0830 Loyal Trooper car park. Leader: Andy Hirst.

"Langold Lake" Our usual monthly Monday walk around Langold Lake. Meet at Andy's Cafe at 1000. Leader: Geoff Facer.

"Alder Fen" Not too far from SK58, this area near Misson should yield wildfowl and raptors. This trip will take place if the Norfolk trip fails to materialise. 0800 at the Loyal Trooper. Leader: Geoff Facer.
