Some of you will remember we had a meeting a few months ago to discuss the way forward for our group. The diary of events below is now the result and as you can see we haven’t quite got all the details for some events later in the year, but I just wanted to let you know what has been planned for this year.
We have three aims for our Wildlife Group.
     To identify species in our area of study
     To learn as much as we can about them.
     To see if we can help them in any way, ie putting up nest boxes, beach
     clean etc.
Our area of study is in an arc from Wisemans Bridge to Pendine, the northerly boundary being above the A477 approx halfway to Tavernspite.
The hot summer last year produced a few surprises:
Several plants and trees blossomed and fruited for the first time in decades.
A Green Woodpecker and its juvenile were seen locally, a first in this area for many years.
In September two Hoopoe were also spotted, these are unusual Mediterranean visitors.
Thanks to Kevin who has provided us with lovely pictures and information in identifying the Fungi we saw at Colby and Woodreef in September.
Also, thanks to those who refurbished our Dormouse boxes, they will be going up in several locations and monitored by volunteers throughout the summer.
Please be aware that any group activity is attended at your own risk.  
You will need to wear sensible footwear /clothing. 
In the interest of wildlife no dogs please.
