Summer Outings 2022

Encouraged by the enthusiastic response to meeting in person next season, we’ve put
together a programme of evening outings to get us going.
None is too far from Clydebank but with the light nights at this time of year we should have
plenty of time to take pictures, perhaps even prize winners.
We hope as many of you as possible will join us on the last Tuesday of each month to take
pictures, have a chat and maybe even a coffee.
If the weather looks bad, call me on 07795802723 and I’ll let you know if it’s cancelled.
I look forward to seeing you on the first evening on 31 May.

May 31 Dalgarvel Ponds, Bishopton (Sunset 9.50 pm)
Meet 7 pm Sainsburys Local car park, Dalgety Drive, Bishopton PA7 5LN
Our host David Thompson will show us the likely spots for photography. Recently spotted have
been greylag chicks, coot chicks, little grebe with young, and swans nesting - as well as the usual
mallards, golden eye and tufted duck.

June 20 Isle of May: sailing 11 am
Book your own trip at https://www.isleofmayferry.com/booking.php
Our advice last year was to visit in mid-June in the mornings when we were most likely to see
puffin activity with sand eels to feed their chicks. This proved a great success, hence our choice of
date and time for this trip.

June 28 Clydeside from Suspension Bridge to Science Centre (Sunset 10.08 pm)
Meet Science Centre 7 pm. Best on-street parking: Pacific Quay, G51 1DZ.
Some members have in the past expressed concern about being alone in this area.
So here’s an opportunity to explore this very photogenic part of Glasgow in the company of others.

July 26 Cloch Lighthouse and Wemyss Bay Station (Sunset 9.38 pm)
Meet Cloch Lighthouse 7 pm. (There’s room to park beside the lighthouse)
Lots of potential at the Cloch. In the event of rain, Wemyss Bay Station offers shelter. There’s
also a bar there which sells coffee. Even darkness is no hindrance

August 30 Kelvingrove Park, Art Galleries area (Sunset 8.16 pm)
Meet Earl Roberts Statue, at the Park Gate - Park Terrace junction 7 pm.
Opportunity to photograph the University, Roberts Statue, Art Galleries, etc. Later we can move
down to the Art Galleries car park when the University and Galleries will be floodlit.









The council aren’t taking bookings for the Hub for the foreseeable future as it is being used as a vaccination centre. We are looking at alternative venues that are not too far from the Hub but in the meantime we are continuing with Zoom meetings.
