FotS announces February events, including more at Danson Park

News just in from the Friends of the Shuttle, which has several events coming up.

The next FotS clean-up is on the Shuttle on Thursday 12th February.  We will be meeting at Crofton Avenue at 10.30, as always please let us know if you can attend.

At around 4pm on Tuesday 17th February Chris Rose and Ralph Todd are looking for volunteers to help in carrying out a count of Ring-Necked Parakeets in Danson Park.  The Park has become a significant roosting site for these exotic birds and upwards of 2,000 birds return there each evening, a spectacular sight.  If you would be interested in helping with the count (or just watching) please let us know, full details to be confirmed.

Ralph Todd of the RSPB will be back in Danson Park on Tuesday 24th February leading a Bird Walk.  Meeting at 09:30 in the main Stables car park, this 3 hour walk will give us a chance to see and hear the avian residents and visitors and we may be lucky enough to see displaying Great Crested Grebes.

Hoping to see you at one, two, three or all of the above events.

Best wishes, Friends of the Shuttle
