Durham RSPB Local Group

Events Programme 2024

Field Meetings

Unless otherwise stated, all trips start from the Stockton Road entrance to the Durham University Science Site and will be by car.  If you wish to meet the group at some other rendezvous, please let David.Sowerbutts@dunelm.org.uk know beforehand so that we do not miss you!

For evening outings parking in the metered spaces near the University Science Site is free at that time of day.  For full day trips cars not needed for the journey will be re-located where parking is free for the day.

Indoor Meetings

All our indoor meetings start at 7.30 pm and are held at Washington Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre, Pattinson, Washington NE38 8LE.  Directions to Washington WWT
