Westmill Farm, Ware, Hertfordshire SG12 0ES
Beds,Essex,Herts branch

Join the Beds, Essex & Herts branch committee for their 2018 AGM followed by a talk on birds of prey. Photographic opportunities are on offer for the budding photographers among you.

There will be a two hour talk on birds of prey by the CJs Birds of Prey team who will bring along a selection of birds to see in action. They are a long established father and daughter flying display team, with a strong emphasis on education and information giving which is often lighthearted and humorous as the birds fail to follow the script.

All are welcome to attend the talk and display accompanying the AGM including children under the supervision of a responsible adult.

The agenda for the AGM and minutes of the AGM 2017 will be available nearer the time. This will include information on nominations and elections for any vacant roles on the branch committee.


12:30 - 13:00 AGM with tea / coffee & biscuits on arrival
13:00 - 15:00 Talk on birds of prey with various birds on show & photographic experience

Also there is an opportunity for members to book an additional flying experience session in the morning between 10:30 and 12:30, outside and independent of the AGM event, where there will be a different selection of birds from the afternoon session. CJs are offering the preferential rate of £17.00 for RSB members, which individuals will need to book directly with CJs Birds of Prey themselves.

Non-RSB members (adults & children*) - £2.00 for the lecture / photographic experience

* There is no age restriction for the afternoon session but children must be supervised by a responsible adult.
