Lots of beautiful Pyramidal orchids have appeared on Old Down in recent weeks.











Harlequin ladybirds and others on tree trunks and twigs. Also often seen on gorse and yew





Butterflies like this gatekeeper are most often  seen on sunny days








Kidney vetch is an excellent source of nectar for long tongued bees

Work Parties
Work parties on Old Down  every Thursday morning 10am at Old Down Hall. We don't mind if it's cold as you soon get warm but unrelenting rain is a different matter. You will be sent a confirmation email the day before if you are on our list of volunteers.

We are pleased to announce that if current guideline dates are met we will be commencing workparties on Thursday 1st April




Work parties on Beggarwood

Work parties have begun again on Beggarwood, the first one took place on 3rd November.  They are to be monthly on the first Tuesday morning of the month 10.00 - 12.00, meeting at the Cafe.  

We are pleased to announce that if current guideline dates are met we will be commencing monthly workparties on Tuesday April 6th.  Contact hookm@hotmail.co.uk if you intend to join the workparty then.







For courses you need to be a full member (annual subscription £5.00) but there is no further fee for the course. For other events a donation of £2.00 from non members and £1.00 from members is requested. For work parties we should probably pay you but sadly it doesn't work that way


For enquiries and courses contact Jill Lincoln at odandbwd@gmail.com
