The Hamilton Area Members Group is a long-established Members’ Group of the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) in Scotland. Last year we celebrated our 25th anniversary and we continue to enjoy birds in much the same way as before. We have talks, outings, surveys and often attend functions to talk to the public about birds.
One of our main interests is our twinned association with The Milvus Group Association, exchanging news and learning about how others care for their birds – on three occasions our members have visited your country – long may the friendship last.
We fund-raise by having an annual Plant Sale and have a close working relationship with our local reserve ofBaron’s Haugh.
