    April 22, 2021 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
    Papplewick Pumping Station, Rigg Ln, Ravenshead, Nottingham NG15 9AJ, UK

    Practical night at Papplewick Ponds, meet 7:30.

    Transferred from last years programme.
    It's hoped that this will be a good weather evening and we will meet at either the car park near oppose Papplewick Pumping Station, (link - https://www.google.com/maps/@53.0620721,-1.122905,16z)
    or there are lay-bys at the top of the ponds between the A614 roundabout and the Papplewick turn on on Longdale Lane. 

    The location is fairly flat, has a good path structure but you'll still need suitable footwear and clothing for the event, so keep an eye on the weather. 

    This is normally a great location for macro, bugs, flowers, wildlife etc. gets a great sunset (if there is one on the night) and as the evening cools the wildlife can become more sedate. 

    If you're new to macro, or feel it's not you're thing, I urge you all to come along an have a go. It's never totally 100% guaranteed or easy, but it's certainly great fun.
