The next meeting is this Saturday to Brockadale lead by Joyce Simmons. Here is a message from Joyce about the meeting:

Brockadale YNU meeting Saturday 23 July.

This is a meeting arranged for Yorkshire Naturalists Union members ( which includes Doncaster Nats members) in Brockadale on Saturday. Meet in the car park on Leys Lane, Little Smeaton SE512174 for 10.30, bring lunch. There will be a meeting to report findings in Kirk Smeaton Church at 4pm. ( Toilets and tea as well)

Brockadale is rather dried up at the moment of course, but last Saturday there were huge numbers of butterflies with many Silver-washed fritillaries in the woodland. 

The forecast for Saturday is cloud and about 23 degrees, so quite pleasant. We hope there will be a little rain before that.

There will be a guided walk, but also chance to join visiting experts who will be looking for some of Brockadale’s limestone specialists.
