ORNITHOLOGY

Our principal aims are to enjoy and learn more about the birds in our area by improving our recognition skills of both appearance and calls.

Most of the ornithology visits are to RSPB or YWT reserves and are usually on the 3rd Thursday of the month except in May and June when we make extra outings. We share cars whenever possible. Some members submit local sightings to our recorder who sends them on to Wharfedale Naturalists Society. New members would be welcome.
