Following on from the check in May, we are invited to join the licensed bat and dormouse workers when they check the nest boxes and roost boxes for bats (usually a good number of different species), and dormice but rare to find one nowadays although we may see some nests and find feeding signs.
There's always something of interest and this year, the fungi should be evident.
Accompanied children are very welcome but please, no dogs as we will be crossing farmland to get into the woods.
This is a chance to visit Derek Gow's mammal photography centre in west Devon where much of the filming for the television series 'The Burrowers' took place. Some of us attended his lecture last winter at Trebullett.
We should be able to see and photograph many of Britain's wild animals some of which are part of a captive breeding programme for re-introductions elsewhere.
BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL, PLACES LIMITED so please contact Dave Groves to book a place. Cost will be £5 per head and it should be possible for us to share transport.
