I'm neutral as either is okay with me

Don't want to cast a vote as my plans are a bit uncertain around the time. If I can come whichever date is decided then I will.

Not that it helps other than to bump the thread. Either or both are good for me

Right as no consensus on date so far and the weather outlook for the 10th is probably damp what say we confirm the 24th as the date for the meet?

The more the merrier MC.
I've only come down on the side of 24th due to having driven nigh on 400 miles in the last 36 hours and wanting a kip on Sunday.

That will tend to gel nearer the time.... at Spurn they charge per car so if we park up outside the area and car share in there less to pay, and with my car there's nothing to pay as I'm a Yorkshire Wildlife Trust member.

thats the complicated bit...it usually only gets fixed up 100% in last 36 hours or so. What was the loose plan this time?

In the past we have been to Bolton Abbey, Arkengarthdale, Flamboro, filey, Spurn, Potteric, Pugneys, Wykeham, Barmston, Blacktoft, Faxfleet, Tophill Low and more and seen somewhere in the region of 205 species together on prearranged meets (no twitches pre-planned) including Amur Falcon, Great Shearwater, Western Bonelli's & Hume's Warbler, Black Kite, all 5 grebes, Honey Buzzard, Black Grouse and much more.

There won't be a charge at all, if there's a YWT member in every car
