Hello you NHRR members!
Now if you fancy a wonderful run admiring the local birds of Oughtonhead common (the flying bird variety) with the famous local twitcher Mr James Walsh, finishing with the best breakfast around at McKeown headquarters, then the Bird Run on the 8th June starting at 9am is for you!!
Get the bins (twitching term for binoculars) and bellies ready for the best Bird Run ever!

Am looking forward to leading this. Remember to bring binoculars if you have them, but don't worry if you don't. I'll have two spare pairs and we'll be doing plenty of listening as well as looking.
See you all there!
Sorry to be missing this, it was fab last year. Have a great time everyone!
If you wondering about the weather, bird run will go ahead, breakfast will definitely go ahead
Thank you to Astrid Steve and James for hosting the bird run. It’s amazing so much enjoyment could be had on day of “damp” weather conditions. Thanks also to the White Throat and the Reed Bunting who were brave enough to show themselves and made it all worthwhile. All topped off by scrummy breakfast- Thanks Astrid
Thanks Astrid & Steve for hosting a lovely breakfast after a rather damp bird run.
Thanks also to James for his amazing knowledge of bird song, making it a fun morning despite the weather.
James thank you for the bird run and sharing your knowledge. Astrid and Steve thank you for welcoming us in, even with our wet feet and mud splattered legs and for the delicious breakfast.
