Foreign Bird Trip Register

At a previous indoor meeting it was suggested that the membership had a wealth of knowledge and expertise around birding trips abroad. Yet that is not widely shared except when a local member gives a talk on one of their trips.

Please visit here for examples of recent trips abroad. I would suggest contributions from the last 6 years with details on the type of holiday eg family, or specific birding together with tour company /tour guide used. Contact details will be provided by those willing to share any inside info on their trip.

If anyone is willing to have their experiences logged in such a way can they contact Neil Porter on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and he will update the spreadsheet for the IT team at intervals.

As an aside it might also reveal some willing speakers for a short talk in the future although that is of course entirely voluntary.
