The 'meetings' time of year

This weekend is the BTO Regional Representatives AGM in Thetford. In Thetford because the annual conference at Swanwick is primarily a Ringers Conference. More on this AGM in another posting.

The following weekend (18-19th Nov) is the North West Bird Fair at Martin Mere; which is still suffering from Oddie and Humble withdrawal effects. We, myself and RR’s from regions in Lancashire, and Manchester, will be sharing responsibility for a BTO stand – so might see you there?

December 8-10th is the BTO Annual Conference at Swanwick, Derbyshire. Although targeted at ringers the theme and cordially is aimed at all so, if you want to see some other aspects of BTO volunteer involvement, think about going. Although a weekend conference there is still scope for day visitors – I’m only going for the Saturday due to other commitments.

Lastly, prior notice. On 10th March 2007 the, now annual?, North West Ringers meeting (this year organised by South-West Lancs Ringing Group and Hilbre Bird Observatory) will be taking place at Thurstaston Country Park on the Wirral; and, on 31st March at Leighton Moss a North West Members meeting will be held. This is being organised by Jean Roberts, the RR for NW Lancs (Jean Rbrts6@aol.com).
