  Dawn Chorus Walk in Westwood

 Sunday March 24th 2019

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 should hear 20 or more different species including some of the

 woodland birds in Westwood’s County Wildlife Site

such as Owls hooting, a Stock Dove cooing,

or the tiny Goldcrest tweeting - the smallest bird in the UK!

Meet 5.00 am at Westwood School

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 2019

This is an event set up over 20yrs ago to raise money for the church, but for the last couple of years numbers have fallen, and I only just got enough together to make it work last year. So, in order to keep it going, to encourage new people to join and swell our fading numbers, I have talked to Friends of Westwood School, who will spread the word amongst the parents. In appreciation, I suggested that the school could benefit from some of the funds raised. Please indicate on the form if you wish your contribution to go solely to the church or some to the school too.  See www.westwoodparish.co.uk  under ‘Events’ for more info about how it works.

On Saturday 15th June this year, we kick off with starters at 7pm.  It is open to residents of Westwood, Avoncliff, Iford and Staples Hill. If you would like to join in this fun event, please return completed form to Jane Mitchell (867322) at 32 Bobbin Lane  WITH PAYMENT by 31st  MAY . I will make every effort to give hosts their 1st preference of courses, but not everyone can do starters!!  Please be prepared to be flexible.
