Bird Watching Group – Christmas Meal, January 2019
22 members of the U3A Bird Watching Group, met at Easton on the Hill, Village Hall, at 2:30 pm for their Annual Christmas get-together. Co leader of the Group, David Needham, gave an expert presentation, on the successful introduction of the Osprey to Rutland Water, in the mid 1990s.
David has a wonderful collection of slides, showing the work of the staff and volunteers, preparing for the arrival of these majestic fish-eating birds. Followed by the young birds being introduced to their temporary new home, and the new surroundings. The speaker used Power Point, for his presentation, (of which he was a member of the introduction team).
Members then settled down for a Buffet lunch and convivial conversation. The lunch was provided by the members themselves!
Carol and David Needham were thanked for organising the event.
