2018 Annual Report

Our 2018 Annual Report is now on sale.

£15 for a full colour, glossy, 140 page A4 report. All profits will be spent on our work at Tice's Meadow Nature Reserve.

The report is much more than a list of the birds seen, it includes all of the site's wildlife, and is a record of all the work we did on site in 2018.

You can collect in person from Richard Horton, or we can post it to you (+ £2 p&p). Please DM or email us to place an order.

Once we've sold all 60 copies, we will release a free lower-res pdf for all to read.



Sponsored Birding Big Day

On Sunday 27th October, members of the Tice's Meadow Bird Group and the Rotary Club of Farnham Weyside are holding a sponsored Big Day's Birding at Farlington Marshes. We're aiming to see as many bird species as we can in a day. All proceeds raised will go towards the Rotary Foundation and the Tice's Meadow Bird Group.
If you'd like to sponsor us, please get in touch, either by email, Twitter, Facebook or in person. Feel free to sponsor us on a “per bird” basis, or for an overall amount. In 2017 we saw 80 species and raised over £750. Your support is very much appreciated!
