Mill Meadows Online News - January-March 2002

Members should have by now received the latest edition of the newsletter. Articles include Frances Adams final report for the year 2001; a summary of the talk on “ The Flora of Langdon Hills Ridge”, an article on Dormice by Countryside Ranger Liz Appleton, and Liz’s report on work carried out on the reserve.

Those of you who have braved the boggy condition to visit the reserve over the winter cannot have failed to see the areas of scrub clearance in Butchers and BrickField. It is amazing how large an area can be cleared in a short time with the right equipment. Work planned for the early part of this year includes further scrub clearance in Hurlocks.

Work Parties: 10th March. Spring-cleaning of Dormouse boxes around the reserve. Meet at the scout hut in Greens Farm Lane at 10am.

Evening Meeting: Thursday 7th March 2002 at 8pm An illustrated talk by PHIL SHAW on FOXES at The Friends Meeting House, corner of London Road / School Road . Car access via School Road only
