2018-2019 Syllabus

Our group has a selection of meetings and trips throughout the season, which runs from September through to May/June each year.

Our Indoor Meetings [IM] are held on Friday nights in the Argyle Centre, Campbell Avenue, Saltcoats. The Centre sits behind Caledonia Primary School and is across the road from St Cuthbert's Church and the 2 sets of 'high flats'. Click the map below for the Argyle Centre's location. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. For outdoor adventures, our Field Trips [FT] are great social events where you can meet like-minded folk, and many of the trips are local and ideal for identifying common birdlife, whilst others are further afield and may include some overnight stays. We encourage car sharing where possible - details at our indoor meetings.
