Birds of the Russian Far East
By: Chris Collins
This talk will review the birds of this amazing, but little visited region covering the Sea of Okhotsk, Sakhalin Island and the Kamchatka Peninsula. Chris will talk about birds such as Tufted and Horned Puffins, Steller’s Sea-eagle and Siberian Rubythroat. He will also talk about some of the collaborative work undertaken between Birdlife International, Birds Russia and a New Zealand expedition company to locate populations of the critically endangered Spoon-billed Sandpiper.

Field Trip to Titchfield Haven, Hants
Forthcoming Field Trip to Titchfield Haven, Hants on 12th August 2018
The meet-up time for this trip is 10:00am in the car park by the sailing club, which is situated almost opposite the reserve entrance. Additional parking is available along the sea-front. Car parking is free at both locations. There is an entry fee payable to gain access to the reserve. The reserve has toilets and a café as well as a shop and sports I think 8 hides. This site usually provides a good trip list as it encompasses several habitat types ranging from woodland and fields, through freshwater marsh to saltwater marsh, to the sea and seashore. The village of Titchfield lies between Southampton and Portsmouth, just to the west of Fareham. Once in the village of Titchfield take Postbrook Lane south towards the coast. The name of the road changes as you proceed, to Triangle Lane and then Meon Road. The car park and reserve lie to the east of the estuary. Hope to see you there.
