2018 Annual Report

Our 2018 Annual Report is now on sale.

£15 for a full colour, glossy, 140 page A4 report. All profits will be spent on our work at Tice's Meadow Nature Reserve.

The report is much more than a list of the birds seen, it includes all of the site's wildlife, and is a record of all the work we did on site in 2018.

You can collect in person from Richard Horton, or we can post it to you (+ £2 p&p). Please DM or email us to place an order.

Once we've sold all 60 copies, we will release a free lower-res pdf for all to read.

Co-op Local Community Fund

We're delighted to be taking part in the Co-op Local Community Fund. If you're a Co-op member, please choose us as and 1% of your spending will be donated to us, no matter where you live. If you're not a Co-op member, please consider signing up.

We had the pleasure of hosting two judges from the office of the Surrey Lieutenancy today as we have been nominated for a prestigous Queen's Award for Voluntary Services. The QAVS is the equivalent of an MBE for volunteer groups and it is a real honour just to be nominated. An announcement of the winners will be made on June 2nd 2020.

Roger Dickey held a ringing session in the woods.

Pupils from Badshot Lea Infants School enjoyed a trip to site today to collect materials for their Christmas decorations and a chance to splash in the muddy puddles.
