25th November 7:30pm to 9:30pm Gresham Village Hall (Hybrid Hall/Zoom event)

The talk from Winterton volunteer Little Tern Warden Lyn describes in words and photos how the RSPB protects East Norfolk’s incredible Little Tern colonies.

Lyn has been a volunteer Little Tern warden for 10 years. She came across a colony by chance when paying her first visit to Winterton in 2010 and was hooked, having never seen a Little Tern before. She was chuffed to discover that this year she’d racked up the most hours by a volunteer! Lyn is also a NWT volunteer, currently helping in the mammoth project to eradicate an aggressively invasive species, Crassula hemsii (New Zealand pigmyweed), from choking Thompson Common pingos. She’s been participating in the BTO’s Breeding Bird Survey for some years. Lyn keeps herself occupied in the winter as a Friends of Horsey Seals warden, and as a Toad Patroller at Cockley Cley. Lyn’s hobby is wildlife photography, particularly Hares and of course, Little Terns!

Please let us know on nenbc@aol.co.uk if you need the Zoom link sent to you - we normally send it out a day or so before the event. We would also appreciate it if you could give us a heads up if you are planning to attend in person at the hall as it helps with our planning, however if you do decide on the night you fancy a trip out, you would still be very welcome so please just come along!

GRESHAM VILLAGE HALL, Church Lane, Gresham, Norfolk, NR11 8RT but note THE PUBLISHED POSTCODE MIGHT NOT TAKE YOU TO EXACTLY THE RIGHT SPOT! Access to the hall car park is actually off East Beckham Road, opposite the church, there is additional parking along the side of the church itself and an overflow car park has kindly been offered to us by Gresham Village School. The school car park is located on Cromer Road to the left of the school as you face it and at the left-hand end of the row of houses – about a 300m walk from the hall. Please park considerately to allow maximum number of cars in the car parks and on the road but with enough space for passing traffic to be able to get through. We can send you a map of the locality on request.
