Introducing Mid Nene Local Group

The Group’s aim is to actively support the work of the RSPB in the local community and to involve RSPB members and the wider public in the Society’s conservation, public affairs, education, fundraising and other activities. We have regular monthly indoor meetings locally throughout the year and have occasional car or coach day trips to local nature reserves.

So if you would like to have fun and meet like-minded people, contact us and help make a difference for birds and wildlife.

Unless otherwise specified, you do not need to be a member of the RSPB (or the local group) to join us on our events, and birdwatching experience is not necessary. If you have any questions, please call the contact number shown with the event details.
