Summer Social at Bank Island

As a departure from the usual June talk we held a summer social and BBQ at Bank Island on the evening of 5th June. The weather was very kind to us as can be seen by the clear skies in the photos. Almost 40 members attended the event and the consensus was that it was a success.

Many thanks to Craig Ralston for the use of the facilities at Bank Island, for some inspired BBQ set up and for showing us some ringing and moth trapping. The Elephant Hawkmoths were superb.

Thanks to Jono and Duncan for leading the bird walks and Jono for the accompanying photos.

Shall we do it again next year?
