Covid-19 restrictions mean that there will be no indoor meetings for the rest of 2020. The situation will be kept under constant review, but it is doubtful if it will be safe to resume meetings until the start of the next season in September 2021.
To keep members informed about developments, the committee will endeavour to publish issues of the Limosa newsletter on a regular basis.
Indoor Meetings Update
Mid-week Walks and Field Trips Return
Following a very successful visit to RSPB Frampton Marsh in September, the club will stage another mid-week event on Wednesday, October 14. The venue is the Eldernell watchpoint, overlooking the RSPB Nene Washes reserve, where there will be a high probability of seeing Barn and Short-eared Owls, as well as Common Cranes and large numbers of wildfowl and waders.
The club will ensure there are enough leaders present so that we can adhere to the ‘rule of six’ currently imposed by the government. As Eldernell is an exposed site where strong breezes can be guaranteed, the wearing of masks will be left to individuals to decide for themselves.
Meet at 2pm at the Eldernell car park, at the end of Eldernell Lane, off the A605 east of Coates.
Information about other field trips will be posted as and when arrangements are confirmed. The ever-changing situation regarding pandemic precautions means we are not able to plan too far ahead, so look out for website updates, e-mail notices and issues of the newsletter.

Welcome to the Peterborough Bird Club. We are a friendly group and warmly welcome new members. Whether you are an expert or beginner, the club aims to bring people together that have a shared interest in nature, particularly birds.
The club runs local walks in through out the year and indoor presentations through the autumn and winter.
Presentations are given by club members, professional photographers and representatives of national nature organisations covering local, national and international birds as well as other nature based subjects such as reptiles, bees, conservation etc….
Walks are usually local but we often go further afield. During these the leaders and others, naturally pass on their knowledge and experience as well as highlighting local sites.
Visitors are welcome to join us on a walk or attend our presentations. You could even join the club and help us carry on into the future.
