Bird.  Watching.

Bird Watching (Monday)

The Met Office forecast for the third Monday last month was rain all day which proved to be all too accurate.  When it rains birds tend to tuck their heads under their wings and wait for it to stop, so I decided to follow their eminently sensible example and cancelled the visit I’d planned.  For […]

Bird Watching (Thursday) – January meeting

On a murky, damp, miserable morning at East Carlton Park, the best we could come up with at our last meeting was a gang of bullfinch, great-spotted woodpecker, goldcrest and for some of us, marsh tit and nuthatch.  Could have been worse I suppose.  Nice and warm in the café though!! February’s outing is on […]

Society Today – January meeting

All members contributed at this month’s meeting, making very good points about this worrying topic:  ‘The Deterioration of Family Life’.  Marriage breakups are quite frequent; non-married couples often split which consequently may have harmful effects on individuals, and loneliness and anxieties which easily lead to brief liaisons.  Children suffer greatly having little support, getting little […]

Singles Sunday Lunch (No 3) – January meeting

Sunday, 15th January, saw the very first lunch of 2017 for Group 3 of the Singles Sunday Lunch Groups.  Eleven of us met at the Bell Pub in Gumley and enjoyed the comfort of two blazing hot fires in the two bars.  Most welcome on such a damp day.  There was an air of excitement […]
