Meetings will be held in the Boyd Orr Building, University Avenue, except where otherwise indicated, and will begin at 7.00pm. Where there are two lectures listed for an evening, each will last about 30 minutes.
At the start of most meetings there will be a short time when members can present their recent observations: these can be short talks (about 2 minutes), or interesting specimens, or photographs. It will be helpful if members intending to make such a presentation can let Roger Downie know in advance: email Roger.
