Bangor Bird Group: an exciting 2013!

Hello guys,

Just to let you know that Bangor Bird Group is back up and running this week for it's weekly Wednesday evening meetings.

There is a varied list of speakers, covering many topics which are more often than not heavily bird-related!

This semester we'll here from the likes of Ruth & Alan (from The Biggest Twitch), local Wildlife Trust representatives and the head of species conservation from the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust among many others!

Meetings take place in the Brambell Building of Bangor University (number 38 on this map).

As we're half way through the Bangor Bird Group-year membership prices have been reduced to £10 (£8 concessions/£7 student). That's around 83p per talk!! If there's just the odd one that takes your fancy then just turn up and pay £2 on the night.

Hope you can make it!

From all of us that make up Bangor Bird Group x
