DAY VISITS 2021
Now that Covid restrictions have eased in most places, we hope that Members will be happy to meet up again, to watch, sketch and photograph wildlife together, so we are organising a few Day Visits for the end of this year.
One of the delights of Membership has always been to meet up and work together, so let’s enjoy a few social occasions whilst we gain reference for our work.
We are not recommending car-sharing at the moment. Please stick to any guidelines about wearing masks, hand-washing and distancing indoors as required by venues. Try to remember to wear your Membership badge – why not keep it in the car!
