Sightings for February 16th

Outdoor Meeting

Sunday 4th February 10:00-13:00
Birds of Poole Harbour Winter Safari Cruise
A three-hour boat trip embracing the safari experience, led by Birds of Poole Harbour staff, scouring the harbour for our hardy overwintering species from otherwise inaccessible areas such as the Wareham Channel and Frome Valley, as well as offering premier views behind the Brownsea Lagoon seawall. The exact route will be determined on the day, taking into account the state of the tide and latest sightings, to maximise the birding potential of the cruise.
Please book by contacting Richard before 20th December.
We have 20 places reserved for CHOG members until that date.
