Our next field trip is an evening walk on Tuesday, 5 July 2016 around Keyhaven Marshes. Starting from the Gun Inn car park (SZ 306 915) at 6.30pm we’ll have a stroll along the sea-wall and back along the “Ancient Highway” and plan to finish before 9.00 pm. There are parking charges in the Gun Inn car park but parking along the sea-wall, if there is space, is free for three hours. Our walks are suitable for all levels of birdwatching experience, including beginners. The field trips are open to all, but a small voluntary donation from those who are not members of the RSPB New Forest Local Group would be appreciated.
Following that, there is an extra walk that was not in the original published programme, which is a walk from Moonhills car park (SU 409 025) on Saturday 9 July 2016, when we will be concentrating more on butterflies than birds. The start time will be 10.00 am and we expect to be back at the car park by 1.00 pm.
