We have arranged five dawn chorus events, over the weekend 1-2 May, for insomniacs – or those of you who wake early. They are spread around the county, so there should be one that is reasonably accessible to you. The meetings start at 0530 and should finish at around 0700. Sunrise is around 05.40 so please arrive on time!

Please book through Des Marshall (07968 419813; desjmarshall@gmail.com). The usual Covid 19 rules will apply, though any plans put in place may of course change. Outdoor meetings with groups of up to six are permissible, given the following guidelines:
1. Members will need to pre-book through Des Marshall and receive a confirmation that they have a place.
2. Equipment and books should not be shared or passed round.
3. Members are asked to maintain a two-metre distance between each other.
4. Members are advised to bring hand sanitiser and face mask.
5. Members should be aware of their own risk level and the suitability of this activity.
6. Please do not come if you are showing any symptoms of Covid 19 or have recently been in contact with anyone who has contracted Covid.
