Bird Run is on 9th June

Advance notice - this year's Bird Run will be on Saturday 9th June.

For those unfamiliar with this event, the idea is that we meet at Astrid and Steve's house (directions will follow) and then jog around nearby Oughtonhead Common nature reserve, stopping whenever there is a bird to look at or hear. In previous years we have seen Corn Buntings, Yellowhanmers, Whitethroats and even Water Rail. It's amazing what wildlife is on our doorstep.

Bring binoculars if you have them, but we will be listening as well as looking, so keep your ears open!

We'll probably cover around 3 miles in an hour and a bit and then it's back to base for Astrid's delicious home baking (the real highlight).

Please post here if you wish to attend, so we know numbers.

Re: Bird Run is on 9th June

What sort of start and finish times are you looking at? This sounds lovely but I already have plans from late morning so might be a bit too tight for me...

Re: Bird Run is on 9th June

Yes please for both of us:)

I’ll be there trying to be quiet too...
Maybe I’ll graduate from pigeon spotting this year!

Re: Bird Run is on 9th June

Ahh yes, start time. Good point..

Let's start earlier this year at 8.00am.

We should be out for around an hour and a quarter, so back at Astrid's for refreshments around 9.15. Some people then like to eat and chat for an hour or more (Astrid and Steve have a lovely garden and the refreshments are very good....), but this is not compulsory.
