About the Birdwatching Group

Birdwatching for up to 10 participants

There are birds aplenty just in Highgate and Queen’s Woods, Alexandra Palace Park, the Woodberry Wetlands, the Parkland Walk, Hampstead Heath and so on. You can expect to see our common urban birds, such as goldfinches, wrens and long tailed tits but we will also seek out the more elusive, including migrant birds in the autumn and spring. Excursions will take us to the Lee Valley and the London Wetland Centre

Experienced bird watchers are very welcome, but it is anticipated that most group members will not have an extensive knowledge of bird watching.

You will need decent binoculars (8×25 or 8×42 are good), appropriate footwear and raingear if the weather threatens. Each visit will have a maximum of 10 participants (though the group as a whole may be larger).

WHEN: Friday mornings for about 2 hours at 10.30 a.m., monthly to begin with, and then perhaps fortnightly if there is the enthusiasm
WHERE: We will visit locations in the immediate area, and subsequently may travel further afield for up to whole-day excursions, as members wish.
NEXT OUTING: Walthamstow Wetlands in December
