Lake District trip 19th to 21st May 2006 ? alternative option
This trip, a repeat of a successful visit some years ago, to be lead by Colin Wilson, is being extended for those who wish to spend one more day birdwatching in the Lake District. This will mean travelling to the Lake District on Thursday 18th May. For those travelling on Friday a suggested itinerary for the journey up will be provided and both parties will meet in the hotel in the evening. The main itinerary has not been finally settled but the intention is to visit Leighton Moss (RSPB), St Bees Head (RSPB), the Bassenthwaite Osprey viewpoint and to seek other local specialities like Ring Ouzels, Pied Flycatchers and Wood Warblers etc. Also, if time allows we may visit the Haweswater where Golden Eagles may still be seen.
As bookings for hotels need to be arranged and negotiated members interested should please contact Colin as soon as possible on 01252 837411 so he can assess the numbers and rooms required. The weekend will involve a fair amount of walking (many reserve viewpoints are at least a mile over uneven terrain from car parks) so wet weather gear and walking boots are recommended.
