Field meetings are mostly on Sundays, though please note weekday evening walks are included in the list.
Note that meeting places will now vary rather than meeting at the fixed place in York.
Please contact Jane Chapman a day or two in advance to arrange a lift if required and to confirm the meeting point for ‘East Coast’ trips. Details will be circulated on the website and via YorkBirding email. Please remember to bring waterproofs, packed lunch and drinks for days out.
