If you’re anything like me then actually getting outside with likeminded individuals is just about the best way to spend the day. Whether you’re going out with an expert learning to identify birds or you’re doing your bit with a wildlife survey these events can be some of the most rewarding days out possible.
So I thought with this in mind I would mention a few forthcoming wildlife and nature events for 2010 so you can find out more about them and get involved wherever possible.
