A coach trip to the British Birdwatching Fair at Rutland

ROC are sponsoring a coach*, which will start at the Wharfe, Newbury at 6.30 a.m., pick up at Reading at about 7 a.m. and do a final pick up at Bray Nature Centre at about 7.20 a.m.
The cost of £25 will include group entry rate to the event. We expect to have about 7 hours there. Come along to enjoy a huge exhibition of bird art, photography, equipment, travel etc. and to see regular denizens of the site: Tree Sparrows, migrant waders and, maybe, one of the several Ospreys. N.B. early booking is advisable.
