Recording Birds in Lady Bay

We are a local group but with members from around Nottinghamshire. We visit local and county areas of interest and often go further afield, including abroad.

As part of our local birdwatching activity we record the birds within the Lady Bay area. This is shown on our website. Birds seen anywhere within the area or from the boundary are included in our listings; most records submitted come from private gardens. Records can be submitted to the group at any time; a short summary report is then issued each month and an annual report at the end of the year. 

As part of this recording exercise, regular short birdwatching walks take place through The Hook area, generally on a Saturday morning and usually last from 08.00 - 09.30 followed by a coffee at the Poppy and Pint. The aim of these walks is to give people regular local birdwatching and an opportunity to get to grips with common bird identification. To date 63 species have been seen on The Hook during a series of 21 walks up to and including December 2019.
