Hi All
The UK meet took place yesterday at the British Wildlife Centre.
A total of eight people gathered on a very warm and lovely day with clear skies apart from the planes preparing to land at nearby Gatwick Airport.
Those attending were JDW (John)and SO (Mary), M Collard (Mike) and Rose, Tweedle (Catherine) and Hobbit (Allan) and UKBadger (Gerry) and Jenolim (Jenny).
A further more detailed report will follow in due course.
But the concensus was that it was a great day.
Regards
JDW

Sorry JDW,
DASSIEDELIGHT and I will be in KNP. Sounds like a good venue though. Maybe next time.


Take care wherever you are.

PF

Meet these two Sunday at Transport dam and could confirm they are in the Knp. Nice everytime to meet Forumites and we didn't even talk cricket,rugby or soccer :whistle: .
Go well up north.
ps. Our two British forumites have the lovely rain of last week to start their trip.

Given our weather this "summer", they'll have felt right at home.

Glad you all enjoyed yourself.

Hi all,

It was a great day and so nice to talk to a few about wildlife in a pleasant environment; I missed the feeding of the Wild Cats whilst watching the first tentative steps of rescued Weasel in its new pen though!

Rose and I were thinking about the next meet and just an idea, although possibly too late for number one suggestion, is to meet in the Chiltern Hils at our little bungalow near Great MIssenden.

1) Barbecue and chat.
2) Meet, then a walk through the Chilterns woodland to a pub for food etc or a cream tea
3) I can put up my ringing nets in the garden and we can see some common garden birds in the hand and chat at the same time

Just a though/ Sincerely Mike and Rose

Mike
Would be very pleased to take up the offer of a meet in the Chilterns.
Sadly SO works weekends so it would be just me.
Hopefully others would be able to attend.
I await further details
Regards
JDW
