On Thursday last week we heard from Peter Antram of the RSPB - St Albans group. The RSPB St Albans group is a great way to meet friendly, like-minded people in the area while learning more about birds and wildlife.
This local group also runs events in the area. Coming up is an event called 'A Date with Nature' which will be held from the 9th November to the 15th November at Verulamium Lake, Verulam Park - look out for the RSPB caravan. Also coming up is a Guided Walk at Tring Reservoir on the 15th November which is a chance to view good numbers of wintering wildfowl including shoveler, wigeon and teal and perhaps a late migrant or two. The walk starts at 9.30am and is free.
The RSPB St Albans group also meets in St Albans on the second Tuesday of each month, September to May, at 8pm in St Saviours Church Hall, Sandpit Lane, St Albans. For more information on the group you can visit www.rspb.org.uk/groups/stalbans/
