NEWS AND FIELD VISITS

Thanks to members for all photographs!


A very successful visit was made to Bishops Bowl Lakes on the 14th June, with Mike Slater of Butterfly Conservation.
The wind kept the butterflies and moths down but the wild flowers were well worth the visit. It was a new  site for most with about 18 members present.

21 members and several visitors enjoyed a visit to Bordon Hill
Nursery at Stratford upon Avon on Sunday. The Nursery has wide margins and borders all around the site and these are being managed to encourage flora and fauna. Many species were identified including Marbled White butterflies.

The Nursery is very environmentally aware and following refreshments in the canteen, a whistle stop tour of the production side took place, and it was fascinating to follow the progression of seed planting through to the final plants seen in the local store, using high-tech machinery.
