Note that these outings are at your own risk. Huddersfield Birdwatchers’ Club, the Trustees, or the leaders will not be liable for any accidents or injuries caused whilst on these outings. However HBWC wishes to ensure that all who attend these outings are aware of any potential risks and hazards involved. The most likely ones and the recommended counter measures you should note and act on are set out in the table below.
The places visited on these outings are not particularly hazardous or exceptionally strenuous. Walks are typically leisurely with frequent stops to look at/for birds. However some of these outings will take us over rough ground and exposed moorland conditions, so please ensure that you are properly equipped as set out in the table above. The directions of the leader must be followed at all times.
The leader can refuse to take anyone on the visit who, in the leader’s opinion, is inappropriately equipped.
Take care at all times
Enjoy the outings
