Our trip to Blashford Lakes on the 23rd.February was cancelled due to bad weather on the day.
We will now be going there on the 30th.March,details for which I emailed members of the NH group.
If you wish to join us please email me,or phone and I will send you joining instructions.
On our April trip (27th April) I shall be leading a bird song identification visit to a site in the New Forest,with the possibility of a pre-trip indoor talk - subject to group demand. (let me know if you are interested).
For our May visit on the 25th.we will visit a chalk downland area to look principally at the flora but also to observe any insects which are associated with this habitat.
