Ornithology: Severn Beach/Pilning

NB – The venue of this event has been changed because of access issues at Clevedon.

Leader: Giles Morris. Tel: 07712 398903

Meet at 09:30 – at Beach Road, Severn Beach, (ST539852, BS35 4PE). NB – this is the northern part of Beach Road next to the park below the Sea Wall.

We will walk north along the sea wall towards New Passage and the Pilning Wetlands. As usual, how far we travel will depend on the time spent looking at wildlife along the route. The date and time have been selected to coincide with high tide so that the waders and wildfowl should be more easily seen at roost on the saltings. We shall also check out the Pilning Wetlands which has been turning up a good variety of interesting species. Anyone with a telescope will find them very useful.

The path is flat but could well be muddy especially beyond New Passage and is also exposed if the weather is inclement, so appropriate footwear and clothing is advised. The meeting will end around 12:30.
