We have now found that July 16th clashes with an FC meeting which will take priority for most of the committee so we will leave this event for this year and try again in 2020.
We are going to check the bat activity that we found around the centre of the village and also do some recording in Revenge Wood as the card in the bat detector there failed on our first survey. Please contact Nick Gibbons on 07790 113025 if you can help.
As most of you will know the Society has been doing a repeat of Peter Robinson’s 1993 botanical survey of Deepdale. Apart from the botanical survey we have also been gathering records of as many other groups as possible and will also have a bat survey there on 9th August. To ‘celebrate’ FC are having an open day on the site and all members are invited. Hopefully we should also be able to generate some more records for the site on the day so bring your field guides etc! Exact timings, access etc will be posted when finalised.
This is now confirmed. Meet at Brompton Village hall at 8.15. There will be a bat talk prior to the survey and villagers are being invited to participate. Contact Nick Gibbons for further details (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This will be point survey to back up the repeat of the 1993 botanical survey of this site by Peter Robinson that we are repeating this year. Meet at Bickley Gate car park (SE911911) at 20.00. Contact Nick Gibbons for further details (email@example.com).
This date has now been confirmed. Meet at the entrance (SE948953) at 19.45. Contact Nick Gibbons for further details (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please note that due to Cath going in for a back operation the beaver visit will be rearranged for a future date. We will still carry out a bat survey to see if we can identify what all the Natterer’s we find in the boxes are doing. Meet at the site at 7.00pm (GR SE776908) . Contact Nick Gibbons (email@example.com).
Talk by Alison Evans
Brompton Wildlife Day will be held at the village hall in Brompton. There will be various displays and some short talks on the various wildlife studies that have been done on the area. This will include a summary of the bat survey we carried out in June. We will also be having a small stand and would appreciate some help during the day especially with erecting and taking down the display boards. Please contact Nick Gibbons on 07790 113025 if you can help.
