The onset of the Covid-19 Lockdown has curtailed much of the Group’s activities on the site. Social distancing means that the Guided Walks have had to be abandoned and the Volunteer Work Mornings are also no longer possible.
Because they are no longer possible to distribute under the Lockdown, the Newsletters have also had to be halted for the time being. You can, however, still send in your sightings via the website.
The Patchwatch went ahead, as people could visit the site for their daily exercise without meeting up, and send their sightings in. A total of 53 species were recorded, including two male Cuckoos.
I hope you are all still managing to visit the site for your daily exercise and that we will meet again at the end of the Lockdown.
Best wishes, Peter Smith.
