Sir Clive Elliott
It is with deep sadness that the Oxford Ornithological Society society reports the death of our president Sir Clive Elliott. Clive passed away peacefully in his sleep on the morning of Wednesday 18th April 2018. It was Clive’s wish to be cremated with only close family in attendance, a celebration of his life at a later date will follow. Our sympathetic thoughts are with his wife and family.

Field Trip to Hook with Warsash, Hants
Forthcoming Field Trip to Warsash, Hants on 6th May 2018   
The meetup time for this walk is 1000hrs in the car park in Passage Lane, Warsash.  Warsah is located on the coast between Southampton and Gosport. Drop South from the A27 to Warsash.  In the centre of the village there is an obvious crossroad, turn right into Shore Road and then fork right into Passage Lane. The car park is at the end of this road.  Parking charges apply and there is a toilet in the car park.  This is quite a varied site ranging from woodland through meadows and heathland to saltmarsh and beach to the Solent.  We should knock up a good trip list.  Hope to see you there.
