In Focus 2017

Binocular and optic specialists In Focus visit us regularly with a wide range of equipment for sale. We receive a percentage of their takings so please support us by visiting Keith when he is at the Bay. Next dates:

26th February

30th April


Wine and Wisdom 2017

24 February

21 April

The quiz will follow the same format as the last one – nibbles but no other food or drink provided, questions in written format so that all members of the team can contribute. Please feel free to bring along your own food and drink. The quiz has no relation to birding – your general knowledge will be tested. The evening starts at 19.30 at the Field Centre.

These events are very popular so please book a table by e-mailing sbbotmail@gmail.com to avoid disappointment.

Cost £3 per person, maximum of 8 people per table.

 Moth nights 2017

 Join local expert Francis Solly to identify and discuss the moths caught the night before around Sandwich Bay.  We trap many migrant as well as local moths and the traps are always interesting.  Feel free to bring along any moths that you have caught that are interesting or that you need help identifying – Francis hasn’t been stumped yet! The evenings start at 6.00pm.
