Saturday 17 Aug 10.00am Rockwell Wildlife Explorers
Please meet at Rockwell Nature Reserve at the entrance I think on Haughton Road (I will be able to confirm this on Monday). For those who can assist with pond dipping & identifying pond creatures you would be a great asset to this event and we would be grateful for your help. Any member who is interested is also very welcome to attend.
Tuesday 20 Aug 7.00 pm Welbury 1 ml Sue Bradley
Please meet at Abbey Road Playing Fields at 7pm. Sue has arranged to borrow a moth trap from the Yorkshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation to use the night before. On the evening of the 20th we will be able to see what was around and (hopefully) identify some of them. Using the moth trap is quite weather dependent so Sue will be sorting out some alternatives if it’s not possible to use it.
It may still be a bit light for bats while people are here but it will depend on the evening. Otherwise members are welcome to explore our wildlife field and (for those who came last year) see what we’ve done since. We have a lot of lovely grasses as well as new trees and a new dry bed area. Tea, coffee and snacks will be provided and there is inside space if the weather isn’t very kind to us so please feel free to treat the evening as an unofficial social gathering.
