Holt Room, RSPB Leighton Moss
Saturday 30th July 2022, 09:30 - 12:30
followed by a guided walk on Arnside Knott 13:45 - 16:00
We have a programme of talks in the morning followed by a guided walk around Arnside Knott for those that would like to join us to try to see Scotch Argus! If the weather looks bad for the afternoon, we may decide to ‘flip’ the programme and do the walk in the morning and then enjoy the talks in the dry during the afternoon. There will be a display of the photography competition entries.
