TDEG’s Wildlife Group are delighted to invite you to join them on three forthcoming wildlife walks around our area.
Please note, that due to continuing COVID 19 restrictions, numbers will be restricted and booking is essential. Booking details below.
A short walk around the village of Tideswell, led by local swift expert, Andy Broadhurst. This event is taking place during the national Swift Awareness Week, and we will be trying to count how many swifts we have swooping above our village.
Meet at 8pm, Fountain Square, Wednesday 14 July (note date change – due to a certain football match!).
Please note that if the weather is very poor, this event may be postponed, as swifts don’t show well in the rain!
An afternoon with local expert, Thomas Eccles, examining the beetles and butterflies to be found at the Tideswell Community Orchard. Meet at the orchard site, on Wheston Bank, at 2pm Saturday 24 July.
Insect surveying equipment will be provided, but please dress appropriately for walking in long (and possibly wet) grass.
We are planning a walk down Tideswell Dale, along with bat detectors, later in the summer.
Details to follow. Watch this space!
