January events


The next indoor meeting of the Northants Bird Club is this coming Wednesday (4th) when Chris Ward presents on the birds and other wildlife of Ecuador. This South American country boasts a massive bird list and attracts eco-tourists from all over the world to savour many gaudy and resplendent species.

Chris is well travelled and an excellent presenter and photographer and I would recommend your attendance from 7.30pm at the regular venue of the Fishing Lodge at Pitsford Reservoir, just outside Holcot on the Brixworth Road. Hot drinks and biscuits are available during the evening and it is a good excuse for a New Year catch up with like-minded naturalists.

Sunday 22nd January 2017 sees the local RSPB group teaming up with the rangers at Stanwick Lakes (or Gravel Pits if you prefer) to hold an event in preparedness for the forthcoming 2017 Big Gardenwatch. The venue will be the visitor centre at Stanwick Lakes and will include a bird ringing demonstration as managed by Ian Wrisdale and members of the Northants Ringing Group.
