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.



Thursday 23 September 2021 - RSPB Old Moor

Our next trip will be to RSPB Old Moor on Thursday 23 September 2021.

RSPB Old Moor is one of our favourite sites and we can return now the hides have reopened. Managed for wildlife, it still holds the record for the number of bird species seen on one of our visits as well as having plenty of wildflower species.

We also think it is now safe to return to meeting at New Mills Coop car park to car share. We hope to see you at the Coop car park, ready for a 10.00am start on Thursday 23 September for the visit to RSPB Old Moor.

For any new members, please bring a packed lunch, hand sanitiser and a mask.

Please inform Dave and Fred if you will be attending.
