Our 2019 Member's Day will take place on Saturday 21st September, between 1.30 and 5.30 p.m. It will again feature the Society's AGM and a variety of interesting talks on aspects of Somerset birds and birdwatching, and will be a good opportunity for Members to socialize. Our previous such events in 2017 and 2018 were well received and the food was enjoyed by all present!. So please come along and give us your support. For full details of the Programme click here. There will be a raffle, a ringing table and plenty of good food. A map showing the location of Cheddon Fitzpaine Village Hall can be found here.

The Society has recently donated an outdoor camera to the South West Children's Hospice at Charlton Farm, Wraxall, so that children, parents and visitors can closely monitor the bird life using their garden feeders, while remaining in their refectory. The idea by the Community Fundraiser, Emma Parker was considered the most worthy of suggestions by our President, Stephen Moss, and Roger Dickey, Eve Tigwell and Dick Best went along to see how the project was working. They were also given a tour of the facilities and met staff and volunteers. Such is the success of the camera at the hospice, that SOS is intending to sponsor membership of the hospice in the Garden Bird Watch scheme, thus hopefully establishing an enduring link with this very worthy organisation.
