Each meeting will follow a similar pattern. We will get to know the area by going to different places. Including visits to the ringing room, when weather permits, to observe the ringing process, learn identification tips and ageing criteria, and also examine any interesting moths that may have been caught the previous night.
Our policy regarding the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults is particularly important as young or vulnerable people's safety is of paramount importance to us. If you have any concerns at all PLEASE speak to our staff in confidence.
