Bat Evening – 7th June – Results.

The early part of the evening was spent examining the various flowers in Forest Road Grassland (LWS) site courtesy of Anne Chalkley – huge swathes of buttercup and yellow rattle were present interspersed with early signs of spotted and marsh orchid, knitted together with ladies mantle and lesser stitchwort.

The bats started feeding a little late at about 10:00am, following an exciting sighting of a woodcock going overhead just minutes earlier. We managed in about 30 minutes approx 30 separate sightings with at least 4 individuals being seen at once. One larger bat swept through but unfortunately we couldn’t ascertain the type. It definitely was a “boomerang bat” because it didn’t come back!

We shall look towards doing a walk amongst the orchids in about 10 days – anyone who is interested please contact me - Peter on 01623 759589

10th May 2016 - ACCESS Nature Walk - Little Oak Plantation

Well, the decision we took many years ago, to fight any development within Little Oak Plantation, was certainly justified, when we walked through the wood today and saw the fantastic display of Spring wildflowers. How sad if these had been destroyed.  Please click read more, below this picture, to see more of the walk.
