Sunday 13th May. What's happening at Wharncliffe? A chance to stroll around the nature reserve with some of the trustees discussing current management plans, while enjoying the birds and the bluebells. Open to all but please remember to wear stout footwear. Meet at the River Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 11.00. Scheduled to finish at 14.00.

 

Friday 18th May.  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 about 08.30.

 

Saturday 10th November. Let's find some Fungi! With Michael (Ziggy) Senkans. Please join Ziggy and friends on a stroll around the reserve looking for and identifying fungi. We have a good selection available and are always looking for something new. Joint 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 at 13.00.
