In November 2014, a former well known member of Ogston Bird Club, John Tagg, sadly passed away. John bequeathed some bird watching equipment to the club, which was subsequently sold for around £900.00. His family suggested that the money might be used for a bird watching trip for Ogston Bird Club members.
After discussion, the Committee decided it would be fitting for some of the money to be used to set up a picnic table and plaque in memory of John at RSPB Bempton Cliffs, John’s favourite birding venue. This is now in hand with the RSPB. In this connection the club is also organising a coach trip to Bempton on Tuesday 28th April, when there will be a short dedication ceremony.
Frank Wharram is now taking bookings for the trip and we are asking for a donation from club members of a minimum of £5.00 per person towards the cost of the coach. Details of the trip are on the Trips section of the website.
The previously arranged trip to Bempton on Sun 10th May will continue to be available for those members who can’t manage a mid-week slot and on this occasion there’s also the possibility of linking up with the local Flamborough Group, courtesy of 2 members of OBC who’ve recently moved to Flamborough.
