The first of three nights of batting! All annual counts of numbers of bats passing at set points along the river bank.

This is the one where you can watch the Daubenton bats flying over the water by the weir. But it is quite a walk through long wet grass and a little bit of marsh so wellies advised.

Please do contact Tony if you have any questions or if the weather is bad. 

No dogs please because of farm livestock.

Another walk with members of the Botanical Group who are trying to update plant records in 1km sqaures (monads) in preparation for a new county flora.

Ian is hoping to cover at least two squares SX2869 and SX2870 so the first will include the edge of Pensilva village but it is always surprising what you can find growing along the pavements and on old walls and hedge banks. Even the cemetery might contain some interesting plants then he will walk north towards Tokenbury Manor along the footpaths through woodland and mining sites.

Start: 20:45
End: 22:30

The second waterway survey night. Easier walking and fairly level but still wet grass underfoot. Nice straight piece of the Tamar to survey.

And again, no dogs please because of farm livestock.

The last of this batch of bat surveys and a location that we have not been to before. May be quite rough under foot.

Please do contact Tony if you would like more information.

As well as up-dating and hopefully, adding some new records, Ian and the botanical group are hoping to search for the Field Gentian Gentianella campestris in an area where it was recorded many years ago.

The monads that we will be walking in are SX3771 & 3773. Although the focus is on plants and ferns, we record any other species we can recognise.

This is the last of the botanical group's summer walks. Although this is quite a journey for many of us, right up to the border with Devon, this valley and reserve are very beautiful.

Ian has listed four squares or monads so his route will probably follow the lanes and footpaths that run down to and along the valley sides. Perhaps a little steep in places?
