Bird of the Month for July – Swift ( Apus apus )
A medium-sized aerial bird, which is a superb flier. It evens sleeps on the wing! It is plain sooty brown, but in flight against the sky it appears black. It has long, scythe-like wings and a short, forked tail. It is a summer visitor, breeding across the UK, but most numerously in the south and east. It winters in Africa.
They have AMBER Status.

24 September 2011 – Coach Trip to Frampton Marsh and as Cruise
It is with the greatest regret that we have to inform members of the cancellation of the planned coach trip to the east coast to visit RSPB Frampton Marsh and a boat cruise on the Wash. An administrative misunderstanding meant we did not meet the cruise organisers’ deadline for a confirmation/cash deposit, and that date is (together with all dates this year) now fully booked.Sincere apologies, particularly to those who had already booked and paid (trips organiser Peter Oldfield will be returning your fees) , or had put the date in their diary with the intention of doing so.
