Walks

We hold frequent bird watching walks, between September and June. Free

Spend a morning with us, exploring a local birding spot such as Dinton Pastures for waterfowl, Braywick for woodland birds, Aston Rowant for Red Kites, or the Jubilee River and Dorney Wetlands for Hobby and Skylark.

While bird watching is our main focus, we also watch out for other wildlife such as deer, insects, weasels and even fungi.

Our outings are suitable for everyone, whether you are an experienced birder or just starting an interest in wildlife. Our walking pace is gentle and the distances are frequently short.

Full-day walks offer a change from Berkshire birds and visit more distant destinations such as Keyhaven, Farmoor, Rainham, Otmoor and Farlington.

We also have a weekend away each year at Gibraltar Point

--------------------

Coach Trips

We run weekend coach day-trips that go to important UK nature reserves such as Portland Bill, Minsmere, Abberton and Dungeness.

Coach trips depart from Braywick Park (Braywick Sports Ground), Braywick Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL6 1BN, where there is free parking.

Prices vary by destination.  Adults - £20.00; Under 16's - £10.00, plus a share of any destination coach entrance charge/donations.

Seats must be booked in advance - Call Ernie Allen on 01628 625324

Bring binoculars to get closer to the birds, bring a camera to record all the wildlife and bring your family - all welcome.

     

Talks

We organise Indoor talks, at the High Street Methodist Church hall, King Street, Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL6 1EA. Easy parking nearby.

Join us at Thursday evening meetings and marvel at the birds of Burma, Russia, USA, Morocco and even England.... and marvel at the difficulties overcome by our intrepid presenters, bird watching in such far flung places.

We also have talks about conservation and talks about RSPB developments.

We are there from 7.00pm, with proceedings starting at 7.30pm and finishing around 9.30pm

Admission (including refreshments) is £3 for RSPB East Berks Group members, £4 for non-members, £1 for any under 16's.

Illustrated talks are given by experienced speakers drawn from across the UK.

We also present details of our forthcoming events for the next month, hold a small raffle and give a rundown of recent local bird sightings.

News, social chat, biscuits and tea or coffee are always included.

Not sure what to put in your garden bird feeders? Need some advice on which bird guide book to buy? Heard a strange bird call? What bird built that nest in your ivy? Come to a meeting and ask around.

--------------------

Black-tailed Godwit

All our events are open to all, particularly beginners and those new to our Thames Valley area. You are assured of a warm welcome and don't have to be a member - come along and we will open up a world of bird experiences to you.

We would be delighted to see you at one of our events. So don't hesitate, meet our friendly group soon and do something different in 2015.

Our website contains many of our Photos taken in local gardens, on our trips within England - and beyond. For news of our group's activities, local events, local planning, local environment, etc., see the In the News section. There are also Reports of past events.
