It’s time for our ‘Winter Tree ID’ session again with Avellana Ecology, where we learn how to identify native British trees and shrubs by focusing on the buds, bark, twigs, size and shape. Impress your friends on a woodland walk by using the methods ecologist Neill Talbot will show us – it’s amazing how easy this can be when you know what to look for! This is a fantastically interesting session for those with little or no prior knowledge.
Our Owl Prowl with Ian McGuire from Wild Owl Nature Diaries took place on 16th Oct on a beautiful calm ‘owly’ night! We heard a female tawny giving us her territorial call very close by and her male partner calling in the distance. Our female came to check us out by making a ‘fly by’ silhouetted against the sky. What a wonderful evening!
We were oversubscribed on this session as we are trying to keep our numbers low due to coronavirus – so you will be pleased to hear we are running a second Owl Prowl this autumn on 27th November! If you didn’t manage to attend the last one, please do join us on this next session.
We are so pleased to be up and running again at Leigh Woods and September has been wonderful with our Kids in the Woods groups. Our new Covid19 measures seem to be going well and everybody attending has reported feeling comfortable with the way we are running sessions.
