The meeting on Saturday June 4th is to Broad Oaks Farm. Meet at 10.00 am at SE657019 SATNAV DN9 3HX.

Leader : Caroline Barrass who has has sent the following message about the meeting:

‘Please park on the verge on Common Lane just before Broad Oaks Farm.
We will walk up to a grass field that was planted two years ago to see what plant species have colonised, at my last visit it was buzzing with Garden Chafers!
Then possible coffee stop in my garden while inspecting wild flower area in the orchard.
Proceed further down Common Lane (stoney) to see Whitethroats, Green Alkanet then along a field edge/hedge on an uneven path to join the riverbank. Walk back to the farm via the riverbank, will hopefully see various dragonflies and Brooklime. 
Picnic lunch on the riverbank for those that wish to. 
Total distance approx. 3.5km.
Recommend long trousers.’

Best wishes

Margaret Prior
