Indoor Meetings

Our group holds an evening meeting on a monthly basis from September through to April in the following year. Apart from brief announcements relating to our activities, supported by a Newsletter, the main item on the agenda for each evening is an audio / visual presentation by a speaker invariably well known in the birding world. The Indoor Meetings Secretary does considerable research well in advance to find good presenters over a range of topics. This involves a degree of networking with other bird groups. The dates and titles of presentations to be given at these 8 meetings are available on the membership card and are outlined in a little more detail below.

The meetings are usually (but not always!) held on the last Friday of each month at the Guild. They commence at 7.30 pm prompt. The meeting usually ends at about 9.30 pm and there is a short break for tea / coffee at an appropriate point in the presentation. We are pleased to say that these meetings are well attended and obviously much appreciated by members and visitors alike.

An entrance fee of £2.00 to members and £4.00 for non-members will be charged at all meetings except the AGM when there will be free admission. A coffee break is taken halfway through the evening. The doors open at 7:30pm for a 7:45pm start.

1st November 2019

Gary will take us on a journey from the mountains of Wales down to the coastal fringes, showing many of the birds that occur on the way. Wales has a great variety of habitats and wildlife, so expect a selection of great images highlighting the delights of this country, which is of course, just on our doorstep.
