If you go down to the woods today…
Residents stunned by sighting of rare species of worker in Westfield Common (read more).
It is proposed that 2019’s great crested newt surveys, will take place on:
· 17/18 April
· 20/21 May
The plan for this year is to complete a full survey: Bottle trapping/torch light and egg searches and hence surveys will carry over into the next morning (will only bottle trap known newt ponds).
Timings will start early evening finishing around 10/11pm and in the morning starting at 7am and finishing around 9am.
ADAS will provide more training this year so people can build up their experience towards a survey licence.
If you would like to attend – in particular people from the local residents groups would be great – please contact ADAS. (Numbers will be kept to no more than 10).
