Afternoon to Dusk Meeting. This meeting will be in three parts:

18:30 New Fancy View SO628095, GL15 4JS
20:30 Speech House Woodland Car Park SO624124, GL16 7EJ
Members can join us at all or any of the venues.

At RSPB Nags Head (meet in the reserve car park) we will look for Pied Flycatchers and Redstarts and other woodland species.
Next meet at the car park at New Fancy View (Grid Ref: SO 628 095 Post Code GL15 4HS) at 1830 hours. Go through the village of Parkend on to Fancy Road. Turn left after just under a mile and the New Fancy View car park is on the right after a quarter of a mile. We will have a short walk here and possibly also at Cannop Ponds.
We will then move on to the car park near Speech House and walk to Crabtree Hill hopefully to see and hear the roding of Woodcock and also Nightjars hunting flying insects at dusk. It is advisable to bring a torch for the return walk and insect repellent.
