 Dawn Chorus Walk in Westwood

Saturday April 28th 2018

One of the Natural Wonders of the World

on your doorstep!

Join Rowena Quantrill from Wiltshire Ornithological Society 

for an early morning walk in Westwood, to experience the amazing symphony of our

song-birds as they wake up!

Learn how to tell the Blackbird’s song from the Song Thrush

We’ll also hear some woodland birds -

 you may hear Owls hooting, the tiny Goldcrest tweeting - the smallest bird in the UK! - or a Stock Dove cooing, 

and many more, all enjoying the natural acoustic of the Ancient Woodland Wildlife Site on the hillside above Avoncliff.

Meet 5.00am in Westwood Park by the playground 

to see the dawn break and hear the very first Robin start off the chorus of birdsong. 

Don’t miss it!  Britain’s songbirds are declining fast - bring friends and family to hear

the magical dawn chorus of birdsong

 in the parish of Westwood - lets inspire the next generation!

Safari Supper - for the uninitiated!

This is a charity event, started many years ago, to raise money for the church.

The basic idea is that people meet at tables of 8 for starters, move to another house for the main course, and again for sweet .Each time, travelling in pairs, you will meet a different set of people, until we all come together at the end for coffee. Most people will need to cook a course for it to work (25% starters, 25% mains,25% sweet), and then about 25% can come purely as guests. Drinks are provided by your host. The event is open to residents of Westwood, Avoncliff and Iford.   The cost is £10 per couple, if you cook, and £50 as guests.

It is a great opportunity to eat good food, drink too much, stagger around the village and meet new people.  If  you come without a partner, I will pair you up as appropriately as possible for the evening.                 

Clearly this takes a good bit of organization, so you do have to sign up well in advance. Watch Update for details.

 This year it will be on Saturday 2nd June.    Jane Mitchell    jemitchell@talktalk.net       867322
