About Maidstone Local Group

Our aim is to welcome new people and introduce them to the RSPB. We hold monthly talks from a range of excellent speakers, usually on the third Thursday of each month. Our programme also includes outdoor field trips to some great locations.

You can also follow us on Facebook for information and updates about the group.

Our indoor meetings start at 7.30pm and cost £5 for local group members and £6 for non-members. The indoor talks are held at Grove Green Community Hall, Penhurst Close, Grove Green, Bearsted, Maidstone, Kent, ME14 5BT.

Wildlife advice

We sometimes receive enquiries from people who have found a sick or injured bird and want to help. The RSPB doesn’t provide a rescue service, but the RSPB website and the Help Wildlife website both provide advice about what to do, including links to organisations who can assist you.

Remember: if you find a baby bird which appears to be abandoned but isn’t injured, it’s best to leave it alone. This is normal behaviour and the parents are usually nearby.
