Talk: Water Voles, Past, Present and Future

Our short AGM will be followed by a talk by Malcolm Monie.
Surveys in 2006 showed that Whitchurch and Whixall were a hotspot for water voles. The Whitchurch Water Vole Project was set up to do conservation work to encourage these delightful creatures. Malcolm Monie will tell us about this project and his involvement in it.

Wednesday, 4th May. 6.50 for 7pm
Walk: Burleydam Farm-Another Way of Farming

Richard Tomlinson takes us around his farm. He produces commercial arable crops using the “no till” method. This increases soil invertebrates and encourages biodiversity.

Outdoor talk: Moths and Moth Trapping

Barry Probin talks about moth trapping and the moths caught over the previous night in the moth traps at the Manor House, Natural England’s Whixall Moss base.
