Ringing in Ravensroost Woods with Simon Tucker

Simon Tucker demonstrates the art of bird ringing – a wide range of woodland birds should be seen in close up. At this time of year there may be flocks of titmice and finches and possibly some of Ravenroost’s winter visitors, such as redwing, lesser redpoll and, if we’re lucky, siskin.
Meet: Will be advised on booking

This is an event organised by the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, Swindon Supporters Group.

Cumberwell Park is hosting a conservation evening to which members and non members of the Club are invited on Friday 21st October 2016 at 7 pm in the Hayswood Suite. The evening will be hosted by Course Manager, Matthew James and Head of Conservation, Jon Keepen and will cover all aspects of conservation at Cumberwell Park including the Bird Box Project, New Course Planting and Long Rough Management. Club member Keith Wright will be involved and there will be a talk by Major Nigel Lewis, Barn Owl Conservation Network Advisor for Wiltshire on “Owls and Raptors”. WOS members welcome.

.....to Parliament seeking a moratorium on the hunting of critically declining wading birds. Woodcock, snipe and golden plover are shot in the UK despite serious, ongoing population declines. Chris is proposing that a moratorium should be imposed to allow the impact of shooting to be established by independent scientific investigation and any necessary regulation introduced to ensure that shooting is sustainable. 


Regrettably the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust event on the 20th August "Festival of Flight" has been cancelled owing to the wet and very windy weather forecast.
