Bat Walks

Tony Morris has kindly offered to lead two bat walks in Gedling House Woods and Meadow on Thursday, 29th June; and Thursday, 27th July, both starting at 9.30pm. We will meet by the gate into the meadow on Wood Lane. Open to all. A small charge of £3 for non-members applies, and free for members.

Regrettably, the bat walk planned for 29th June was cancelled due to the wet weather. There would have been very few bats on the wing because the midges, one of their sources of food, would not have been flying as it is so wet.

The next bat walk will be held on Thursday, 27th July, at 9.30pm. We will hope for better weather then.

The meadows had their annual weed-killing on Monday 19th June, and have now re-opened.

We are required to undertake weed killing annually under our agreement with Natural England. The purpose is to remove invasive broad-leaved weeds such as thistle, dock, burdock, ragwort and nettles to allow the grass and wild flowers to flourish.
