Lanarkshire RSPB Group
This is your nearest RSPB Local Group to Baron’s Haugh. Why not join us, usually on the 3rd Thurs. evening in each month? We are a very open, friendly group and are all in the business of learning more about birds and enjoying ourselves in the process.
Our evening usually starts with a free-for all, with everyone chipping in whatever interesting things they have seen. There is a main speaker – the topics varying throughout the year. A sociable cup of tea is then followed by questions to the speaker and we often finish the evening with a very basic look at some images of species that we are possibly going to be watching locally.
There is a series of Sun. day-trips (following each Thurs.) by car or sometimes bus to good birding areas. Once a year we extend this to a weekend away. Our members have many varied interests including photography, rarity-finding, conservation work and work on specific species. To be honest though, most folk just enjoy the company.
