Events – August 2022

Here is our current events programme, until the end of August.  Non-members are welcome to attend our talks (£5 entrance fee) and walks (£2 suggested donation).

10am Tuesday 16th August Tice’s Meadow – morning walk
Leader: Rebecca Dunne (07879 645971) rdunne@blueyonder.co.uk
A small award-winning nature reserve and open space for the local community. Saved from development and maintained by volunteers on the site of Farnham Quarry. If you’ve spotted the lake as you rush past on the A31 why not come along and explore its varied habitats – open water, gravel islands and scrapes, reedbeds, scrub, woodland, and wet and dry grassland. A good time of year for passage migrants such as sandpipers and other waders to drop in.
Meet: Reserve entrance on Badshot Lea Road (B3208) near the Pea Bridge (at SU 86759 49018). Postcode GU9 9LS.
Nearest toilets and café just up the road at Squires Garden Centre GU9 9JX

Leader: Clare Million (07794 835571), claremillion@gmail.com Please advise Clare if you’re planning to come.
The autumn migration should be well under way by now, providing opportunities for us to test our identification skills with little stints, whimbrel and sandpipers as we explore this wonderful site overlooking the Swale. Meet: at the car park at the end of Church Road, Oare, ME13 0QD cost: £2.50. NB car parking is very limited so do try and share lifts.
