After an early start and on a rather grey and mizzly day, a group of WI members set off last week on a Federation birdwatching trip. They headed to a new venue for us all, the RSPB reserve at Bowling Green Marsh Exeter. Accompanied by Roger Hooper, a knowledgeable and enthusiasic volunteer for RSPB, the gruop walked almost 6 miles, enjoying the views and taking time to look at the different species of birds on the marshes.
After lunch, there was even time for a little retail therapy at Darts Farm, and then onto Powderham Castle to look out over the estuary.
Thank you to Roger for giving up his time, driving the mini-bus and putting up with 16 WI members! And a big thank you to our Activity & Leisure sub-committee for organising the event.
