Once indoor meetings resume, they will be held at the Supper Room of St Andrews Town Hall (at the corner of South Street & Queen’s Gardens), KY16 9TA (click here for a map of the venue and surrounding area).
The normal pattern of field trips is to alternate between Saturday and Sunday outings, and between half-day and full day trips, to cater for members’ differing preferences and other commitments. Beginner and experienced birdwatchers are welcome.
The branch hopes to run some more excursions in the future, so please check back here regularly for updates.
Details of forthcoming trips will be sent to SOC Fife branch members by email, if you have signed up for this (or click here if you haven't already done so).
Operating Committee members:
Caroline Gordon, David Heeley, Elizabeth Irwin, John Irwin (Treasurer) and Andrew Riches

Talks and outings reminders:
Members who've consented to Local Branch news and events e-communications from SOC, are sent a reminder about forthcoming talks (with more information on the speaker and subject where possible), usually a week or so in advance of the meeting. A similar reminder service operates for outings. If you don’t already receive these alerts and would like to, please make sure you've completed a Mailing List Consent Form to allow the Club to contact you. If you've already completed a form, check your junk/spam/clutter folders to make sure our emails aren't landing there. Still nothing? Contact Headquarters as we may not have a correct or up to date email address on file for you.
