LOCAL INFORMATION on forays!
Most local forays are of like-minded individuals just looking in suitable places at the right time of year.
We have found that a number of species are to be seen at other times of year,when we have been out recording Dragonflies and Butterflies.
So we have incorporated lists of sighting months in our Website,for your information.
Annual sightings are also recorded.

of the unusual circumstances regarding foot and mouth this year, you are

list of members names and addresses, if you have not done so please let me
forays start in the morning and are expected to continue into the afternoon so

Park in the Grange C.P. The car park is reached by a sign post marked
the Grange off the B 3046 at SU570365.When you turn off the B 3046
ignore the metalled road infront of you and turn right through the lodge
gates. This single track metalled road becomes a gravel track through farmland
after ‘sleeping policemen’. Where directed take two left hand turns until
you pass over the cattle grid at the entrance to the Grange. Follow the drive
round to the right hand side of the building where there is a car park (rather
concealed and not well sign posted)
