Because the Botanical Cornwall Group is hoping to publish a new flora for Cornwall in the next year or two, there is a real need to survey any 1k squares that are under-recorded or need up-dating. Villages and the edges of towns are often overlooked so these two villages just to the south of Bodmin Moor may contain a surprizing number of plant species.

Ian will record plant galls, mildews and rusts as well as other species that people are confident about including birds, mammals and insects so not just the plants.

This is a walk along the river Tamar at dusk and after dark to count the numbers of Daubenton's Bats passing each of ten spots along the river bank. You'll be able to use bat detectors to hear the sounds made by the bats and possibly see them feeding over the water. If it is a perfect evening, the bats will fly in close by the weir and often fly up and over our heads. There are often other species of bat along the hedgerow and over the fields.

Another Botanical Group walk in our area, this time on the north-eastern side of the moor near Rough Tor. As well as up-dating records, the group will be searching for the very rare Bog Orchid Hammarbya paludosa which is rather small and subtle so perhaps overlooked.

Please meet at 9:30am so there is time for an introduction etc before starting the walk at 10am. This time, I would think that waterproof boots/wellies might be advisable.

All are welcome; we will record other things, not just plants.

Treraven farm is one of several properties owned by the Gaia Trust, an organisation that seeks to manage land in a sustainable way and encourage wildlife friendly farming. Community involvement is also important.

Under the Mammal Group banner, Dave Groves is organising a weekend of recording but not just mammals and LAPWG is invited, after all we cover many interests and knowledge between us now! I am hoping that there may be a chnace for an early nut-hunt.
