Spring and Summer News 2015

Spring and Summer News 2015

Following our AGM on 1 May there will be no more indoor meetings until the start of the new season on 4 September. However, we have lots of field trips planned for May and June. These include coach trips to RSPB Minsmere (17 May) and to Stodmarsh NNR Kent (21 June). At the latter venue we may, if weather conditions are suitable, make a short visit to RSPB Blean Woods to look for the rare heath fritillary butterfly (see image). We have also organised evening trips to Therfield Heath (20 May) and Oughtonhead Common (3 June) and a half day visit to RSPB Lakenheath Fen, NWT Weeting Heath and Thetford Forest on 15 June. Full details of all these visits can be found on the 'Events' page.

We are also running stalls at the Shefford Summer Fete (Sunday 31 May) and the Letchworth Festival (13 June). We hope to see you at one or more of these events!

The committee takes a well-earned break from late June until August, before the new season starts on Sunday 30 August with an 'own transport' visit to College Lake and the Tring Reservoirs. For full details of next season's programme see the attached PDF file.
