Batty about Newts.
A crepuscular meeting to explore the
inhabitants of the dam pond and the bats that feed over it. Bat
detectors, torches and pond dipping equipment will be available with
qualified and licenced ecologists to help us find and identify the
beasts of the night. Suitable for family parties to attend, but
please bring your own torch and wear solid footwear and clothes
that will keep the chill (but hopefully not the rain) out. Meet at the River
Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 20.30. Scheduled to finish
around 22.30 to 23.00.
Sunday 27th May.
A Dawn Chorus walk.
All of our summer visitors should be back
to join our residents, and so it is a good time to get out to listen and
watch their territorial and breeding activities. We should hear all the
common woodland birds plus some on the heath like Tree Pipit and Linnet,
and possibly some locally rarer flycatchers and Redstart. A cuckoo is
also possible. Andrew Hill will be our guide and interpreter. Suitable
for all ages and levels of knowledge, but please wear stout footwear and
clothes appropriate for a cold May morning. Meet at the River
Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 04.30, scheduled to finish
Saturday 10th November.

event with Sorby NHS. Please wear tough boots and clothes
appropriate for the time of year. Meet at the River
Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 11.00. Scheduled to finish
