SK58 Birders moving forward- then contact any of the group organisers
Lilley "AGM + Bird Ringing" This promises to be an excellent
evening. Don't be put off by the AGM, it usually only lasts 20 mins,
then we'll have Chris talking about his ringing exploits here in SK58
and further afield. 1930 in The Loyal Trooper, South Anston. All welcome.
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.
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.

meal. Meet 0830 Loyal Trooper car park. Leader: Andy Hirst.

Meet at Andy's Cafe at 1000. Leader: Geoff Facer.
Weekend" Proposed. In years
past we've run a three day trip to Norfolk to the Yare Valley and
North Norfolk, staying overnight in Wells. If there's interest, we'll
run this again.

yield wildfowl and raptors. This trip will take place if the Norfolk
