Manx Ornithological Society – confirmation of Christmas social date change

Richard Norris, Membership Secretary of the Manx Ornithological Society, has emailed its members about December’s Christmas Social:

Dear Members,

Further to my recent email, I can now confirm that the Social will be held on Thursday 4th December at 7:30pm at Peel Golf Club, and not Tuesday 2nd December as printed in the programme. Advance booking is essential, so if you wish to go and have not already put your name down, please speak with Anne Kaye on 834015 before the end of the month.

Please note: the Society welcomes all birdwatchers to the indoor meetings, both members and non-members alike. The Christmas Social requires pre-booking however.

Manx Ornithological Society – meeting information

Richard Norris, Membership Secretary of the Manx Ornithological Society, has emailed its members about a meeting this week and also December’s Christmas Social:

Dear Members,

A reminder that our next evening meeting is on Tuesday 4th November at 7.30 pm at Union Mills Methodist Church Hall, when our member Kev Scott will be talking about “Bird Ringing on the Isle of Man”. Kev is an enthusiastic ringer and photographer, and it promises to be an interesting and informative evening.

Union Mills Methodist Church Hall is next to the shop on the corner where the Strang Road joins the main Douglas to Peel Road. Car parking is available behind the hall, with access from Strang Road. Tea or coffee and biscuits will be available before the meeting (from around 7.15 pm).

Our Christmas Social was originally to be on Tuesday 2nd December, but this clashes with Chris Packham’s appearance at the Gaiety Theatre. As it is thought that quite a number of members may wish to hear Chris Packham, it has been decided provisionally to hold the Christmas Social on Thursday 4th December instead. The venue, Peel Golf Club, and time, 7.30 pm, would remain unchanged. A final decision will be taken after the November meeting, at which members will have an opportunity to comment.

Manx Ornithological Society – first indoor meeting of the autumn

Richard Norris, Membership Secretary of the Manx Ornithological Society, has emailed its members about a meeting next week:

Dear Members,

A reminder that our first evening meeting of the autumn is on Tuesday 7th October at 7.30 pm at Union Mills Methodist Church Hall. On this occasion, we have not one but two talks, both from MOS members. Liz Charter, Principal Biodiversity Officer at DEFA, will talk about biodiversity and the Isle of Man Biodiversity Strategy, and then Tim Earl will recount some more of his experiences as a naturalist and wildlife tour guide.

Union Mills Methodist Church Hall is next to the shop on the corner where the Strang Road joins the main Douglas to Peel Road. Car parking is available behind the hall, with access from Strang Road. Tea or coffee and biscuits will be available before the meeting (from around 7.15 pm). 

Best wishes,
