MEETINGS: Once or twice a month on various days to minimise recurrent clashes with members' other commitments.
We are always happy to welcome new members. None of us claim to be experts but try to puzzle our way to the names of the organisms we find. If you are interested in joining us or want more information please contact us.

We usually meet at the Co-op car park, Church Road, New Mills at 10 am. The number on walks is limited only by having enough seats in cars. Attendance varies with members’ diaries, inclinations and the weather (we are sensible people, not masochists).

Come and join us. There's no limit to the number on the mailing list.

NEXT MEETING

Stanage Edge and Longshaw Estate
Wednesday 9 May 2018

From the car park at the top or Burbage Brook we will walk across the heather moor and up on to Stanage Edge in search of the ring ouzel, our mountain blackbird. Last year we had good views of these elusive birds and also of redstart and wheatear. We will then move onto the Longshaw estate and explore Padley Gorge for both spotted and pied flycatchers although last year we only saw the latter as it flitted in and out of its nestbox. By May there should also be more spring flowers to be seen especially in the area around the edge of Padley Gorge and along the banks of the stream.

Meet at 10.00 am at Coop Car Park to car share. Please let Fred and Dave know if you plan to attend.
