About Medway Local Group

RSPB Medway Group was founded in 1974 and for nearly 50 years has provided local support for the RSPB. We produce an interesting programme of indoor and outdoor events, as well as various fundraising activities.

We are always pleased to see new helpers at public events, where there is the opportunity to get involved as much or as little as you would like. Our indoor talks are held on the third Tuesday of each month (except August), and our talks via Zoom on the first Thursday. Our talks feature well-known local and national speakers. The field trips, which are nearly all FREE, run throughout the year and take in all the hot-spots within Kent and the South East. We also regularly run coach trips to reserves further afield.

We are always happy to see new faces at our indoor and Zoom talks. Any changes to these talks will appear on our website and Facebook page. For further information, please contact our talks organiser Lesley Woodhouse on 01634 967 448 or by emailing medwayRSPB.talks@gmail.com.

On the walks, everyone is welcome and help is always on hand with identification. For any enquiries, please contact our Field Trips Organiser Warren Mann on 07845 484754 or by emailing medwayrspb-leader@virginmedia.com. If you are an RSPB member, please remember to bring your membership card with you when visiting RSPB reserves.

We can also give talks on birds, nature and the RSPB to community groups in the local area.
