The trip is now full but we will keep a waiting list so please email me if you would like to be informed if a place becomes available.
Trip to Maldon and on the Thames Barge Kitty (combined RPS Nature Group and East Anglia Region outing). The Maldon Estuary at this time of year can be full of wader flocks etc., and there is plenty to photograph around the Quay, Promenade and Town. Meet at Maldon around 10:00 for a morning walk along the Estuary to photograph waders etc. feeding on the mud flats, and moving around as the tide comes in (or a chance to photograph around Maldon Quay and the town). There are lots of cafes and pubs serving food for lunch or bring a picnic. Meet on the Quay at 13:45 for an afternoon sail on Kitty leaving Maldon at 14:00 returning at 16:30 for tea/coffee and snacks to set you up for the drive home. Cost is £27 - although not the full day sail that we hoped for because of the tide, it is still a very reasonable price for trip out on a Thames Barge. Partners welcome.
