Local Flora, Fauna & Fungi

For people interested in visiting different places, viewing wildlife, insects & plants, and learning more about them.

We usually meet on the 4th Tuesday morning of each month at 10am for approx. 2 hours. This will change in Feb 2020 to the 1st Tuesday.


The majority of the sessions will be outdoors, so please wear suitable boots and clothing, and for some the access may be via stiles (of which we'll try to give you advance notice).

For a few winter months we may opt for an indoor meeting where we'll have a presentation with photographs and speaker.

We'll make use both of local guides who can impart their specialist knowledge, and also Group members who are able to share their enthusiasm and information they have of their locality and what we are seeing.

The visits we arrange and the topics chosen will be influenced by the interests of Group members, so full participation is encouraged.

On occasions there may be a small charge to cover the expenses of any guides/experts we engage for a session.
