We carry out regular litter picking sessions on (normally) the first Saturday of each month, as well as social events three or four times during the year.

Please see the links above for further information.

The following are the events we have completed last year (2017).

Friday 11 August 2017 – Moth Evening

The evening was warm and it was not completely dark as David Brown, the County Moth Recorder set up two moth traps near to Finham Brook in Abbey Fields. After a slow start the moths began to arrive as darkness descended.

Although many people dislike moths and other flying insects as you can see below they can be as beautiful as Butterflies.

Our thanks once again to David Brown for his continued support and advice on moths.

Rescued Bat

Once again we were fortunate to have Dr. Jon Russ, an ecologist and member of Warwickshire Bat Group to guide us in finding the bats present in Abbey Fields. He brought with him a rescued bat so that we could see one close up. Old Wives’ tales would have us believe that bats are unpleasant dangerous creatures whose only role in life is to fill the pages of gothic horror novels. In fact they are very useful to us as they eat many, many insects such as mosquitoes and other, to us, unpleasant bugs.

Saturday 03 June 2017 – Tree Walk

Tree Walk – Paused to check out some of the trees in St Nicholas’ churchyard

The tree walk went very well with Warwick Tree Wardens Lesley Hall and Veronica Hyland leading the way, it was a bright sunny day, we started at 10.00am and finished at 11.45am. 19 people attended and all showed considerable interest, because of this we may want to repeat it again next year as well as the’ Meadow walk’.
