Wivenhoe Watching Wildlife - Autumn Events 2013

edited September 2013 in Wivenhoe Wildlife
The autumn programme of WWW
events will be as follows:

 

Sunday 29 September: Birdwatching Vigil on
the Shipyard Jetty
. The WWW team will be on the jetty from dawn until dusk,
with binoculars, telescopes and friendly chat, trying to see as many birds as
possible in the day. Hopefully Richard will also be there doing some live
sketching, and if there is the demand we will also offer one or two additional
bird walks down the estuary. No booking required - just turn up and meet
us.

 

Sunday 27 October
(afternoon): Nature's Bounty
. A walk (time and location to be confirmed
nearer the time according to what is around) looking at this autumn's crop of
fungi, wild fruits, galls and anything else we come across. Again, no booking
required.

 

Friday 8 November (evening): AutumnWatch
presentation
. Our half-yearly indoor presentation on a wildife theme,
with venue and programme to be confirmed. We will be asking for bookings for
this one as spaces may be limited. It will be the usual mix of talks (maybe a
special guest) and other activities. Personal Message me if you would like seats reserving.

 

So while we have decided on
the dates, the details of each are still to be confirmed (and at least the first
two are also weather dependent). We will post full details closer to the
events on this thread. As always, all events are free to attend, but donations will be
gratefully acccepted for the Mayor's Charity Fund.

 

Another date for your
diaries is Richard Allen's Open Studio Sat 21st 2-6pm and Sun 22nd
Sept 11-6pm:
do go along and see his wonderful artworks, and perhaps get
something to fill that gap on your wall! For more details contact him on richard@richardallen31.wanadoo.co.uk.
Remember to take your chequebooks...

  • Just a reminder that WWW will be holding its annual all-day birdwatch this coming Sunday:

    Sunday 29 September: Birdwatching Vigil on 
    the Shipyard Jetty
    . The WWW team will be on the jetty from dawn until dusk, 
    with binoculars, telescopes and friendly chat, trying to see as many birds as 
    possible in the day. 
    If there is the demand we will also offer one or two additional 
    bird walks down the estuary. No booking required - just turn up and meet 
    us.

    The forecast is looking good - sunny, though quite breezy from the east which will make it a bit chilly, so wrap up warm, especially early or late in the day, which is when the birds are likely to be at their best. We should be there from around 0630 to 1900, and with easterly winds who knows what exciting birds may pass through.
