FRIENDSHIP CLUB
Mr Neil Taylor gave a very interesting slide show of birds at the Friendship
club meeting on Thursday afternoon. Mr Taylor is a member of an eclusive
bird ringers group, which has only 2,000 members in the U.K.

The birds are caught, measured, weighed, examined and ringed as quickly as
possible to gain information and keep track of the birds.

Among the slides shown were wrens, blackbird, goldcrest, long tailed tit,
greenfinch, dunnock,coaltit, and other rare birds.

This was a very interesting talk and slide show.

The club will hold a quiz night at the Rose and Crown for club funds on
March 1st.
