Pensilva Wildlife Group have organised this talk about the road works along the A30 that we are rather too familiar with!
All are very welcome to attend.
Jenny Stuart (Principal Ecologist for Cornwall Environmental Consultants) and Jamie Cook (Assistant Design Manager for Kier) with be talking about the steps taken during the planning and execution of this major road building project in order to minimise the impact on the flora and fauna of the local area.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions.
This is the second visit of the year, the first was back in May. Organised for the Bat Group but members of our local LAPWG group are very welcome especially if they bring cake...!
The main work of the afternoon is about checking the bat roosts when trainees and bat workers identify and count the bats. Very often we have the opportunity to see the bats being handled and find out about their life cycle and the habitat they need. Sometimes the roosts are packed full of bats and it is a challenge to count them.
When did you last hear the china clay centre of Cornwall called the 'Cornish Alps?' As nature returns through natural re-colonosation and land management, this mining landscape's renowned bleakness and whiteness are gradually vanishing.
