Participate in the 110th ECOC
birding trip down the Ipswich River! Arguably the oldest
uninterrupted bird-count in the world, this event is timed to get the
best views of birds before full leaf-out, but late enough in the season
to get better weather for paddling. Contact Robert for trip start time
and other details.
