Group Title: Nature Group
Group Description: We meet once a month and go out into the countryside to see what we can find. There is no need to have any prior knowledge, we all learn together. There are a few keen bird watchers and some novices. Butterflies, damselflies, dragonflies and plants are all of interest. The programme is varied and suggestions always welcome.
The only things you need are enthusiasm and stout footwear. We often walk over uneven ground and occasionally have to climb a style.

This summer we visited Peatlands park, a bit damp but still saw some dragonflies, plus this strange sight, Jack at play.

We also visited Killard, Oxford Island, as well as seeing winter waders on Strangford and hearing the dawn chorus  at the Quoile.

All waiting for the ferry, some just getting there in time.

Rathlin Trip

The weather was kind to us and we all had a good time, lots of birds out at the visitors centre.  The new centre even stocks coffee, but we were really there to see the puffins, guillemots, razor bills, kittiwakes and fulmars.

A quite summer,but dragonflies and bog plants in Peatland park.

Oxford Island, whooper swans, grebs displaying and now know what saup look like.
