Birdwatching

Orpington u3a members please logon to see group leader contact details.

We visit local parks and open spaces to observe our bird life and monitor the changes with the seasons. It provides an opportunity to meet old and new friends and share our knowledge of the species we see. Journey times vary, but we try to share driving duties. 

Meets: 4th Wednesday (February to November), 10 a.m. at venue chosen in advance.

Costs: Petrol and some sites (e.g. RSPB) charge for entry.

This is an open group. We always have vacancies for new members.


The group will be setting out its programme of visits for each fourth Wednesday in 2024.
