Greta Thunberg

Greta Thunberg and the Climate Crisis

In this passionate call to action, 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg explains why, in August 2018, she walked out of school and organized a strike to raise awareness of global warming, protesting outside the Swedish parliament and grabbing the world's attention. "The climate crisis has already been solved. We already have all the facts and solutions," Thunberg says. "All we have to do is to wake up and change." This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxStockholm, an independent event. TED's editors chose to feature it for you. Watch Video


Beddgelert

Holiday in Wales

In June 2019 the RSPB Lincoln Local Group spent a week in Wales, based at Beddgelert, Snowdonia we visited various RSPB nature reserves and managed to see a good variety of habitats, birds and other wildlife. You can see a small selection of photos taken during the week here.


Peregrine

Lincoln Cathedral's peregrines

PEREGRINE WATCHPOINT at Lincoln Cathedral. Unfortunately this has been cancelled for 2020 but we hope to run the event again in 2021.

Sadly the 3 eggs laid this year have proven to be infertile so no young peregrines in 2020.

Bird-food sales

Due to the retirement of the existing bird food sales volunteers we are looking for someone to organise and sell bird-food at the monthly indoor meetings. You will need to have a suitable vermin-free storage area and be able to transport bags of bird food to the meetings. You will also need to re-order stock from our supplier as and when required and weigh and bag the bird-food ready for sale. If you are interested in helping please contact any committee member. Contact details are on the 'About Us' page.

Free coach travel for children on Sunday coach outings

You can book one free coach seat for a child under the age of 16 for each adult seat you book and pay for in advance - any admission charges will still apply, only the coach travel is free. We realise that it can be expensive for families to visit nature reserves so we are making this offer to encourage more people to bring children with them and encourage them to take an interest in birds, wildlife and our wonderful natural heritage.
