Field Meeting Sunday 3rd July

Please note that this meeting will be on Sunday, not Saturday.

We will be recording in a BSBI-requested monad, SK8119, south-west of Saxby. Most of the monad is agricultural land (arable fields and pastures), roadside verges, a small area of woodland, a stream and a couple of ponds. It may be possible to see some of the former railway line. A lot of our time will be spent on road verges, so extra care will be needed.

Meet on Sunday 3 July at 10:30 a.m. at St. Peter's Church at SK819200. Please park in the adjacent streets, taking care not to block entrances and be aware that a church service may be occurring, so parking around the church may be limited. We plan to finish around 3:30 p.m. at the latest.

The meeting is suitable for both beginners and experienced botanists, and it should be a fairly leisurely day with plenty of time to show and discuss what we find. You're welcome to stay with us for as long as you wish, and to leave at any time, provided you tell us when you go. Please bring sunscreen, rain gear etc. to suit the weather, and lunch and a drink, if staying all day.

If you would like more details or to arrange car-sharing, please phone me on 07594 302127.
