Camp Avalon - A camp for young birders and inner city teenagers

After lunch, I gave a short talk before we had a quick review of the weekend before going out on a bird ID session on Shapwick Heath with Keith Vinicombe. There were no waders to look at but Keith was full of ID information and bird stories.

It had been the best weekend ever, making lots of friends my own age, but I was exhausted.

Next year, Camp Avalon is on 8/9/10 July 2016 and I hope to make it bigger and better.  Next Generation Birders have said they would like to get involved and I hope other organisations will get involved too.  If you would like to come, whether you are already into birds or not, e-mail me at campavalonuk@gmail.co.uk.
