Change to Programme of Field Trips
The trip to the Forest of Dean and Gwent levels shown on the programme for 23rd March 2005 has now been changed to Thursday 24th March as it clashes with the joint meeting we have arranged with NDOC, an identification meeting on the subject of ducks. A mid week date has been chosen to avoid the ?crowds? who go to New Fancy View to see Goshawks at weekends.
For the last few years a few members of the ROC have been visiting the Forest of Dean in March to find these birds and others, and last year added a visit to the Gwent Levels Wetlands Reserve (now known as Newport Wetlands). This place is close by and is really worth a visit.
Colin Wilson will be leading the trip and will see if lifts can be provided for those who prefer not to drive. Let him know nearer the date if you are coming or need a lift.
