Worksop & District

Natural History

INDOOR MEETINGS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

MEETING OUTSIDE WHEN POSSIBLE

The Natural History Group normally meets on the first Friday in the month. During the winter, we meet at Worksop Library at 2.00pm and enjoy a variety of speakers.

This year we will hear about Peregrine Falcons, dormice and prehistoric animals to name but three. As the weather improves , we will visit various nature reserves both local and on the coast. Sometimes this involves an early start as when listening to the dawn chorus or watching a local group birdringing. We have been pond -dipping, bat - hunting, looking for midwife toads and searching for glow worms
.
Anything connected to the environment, be it geology ,fungi, trees, spiders, butterflies and of course all species of birds from nightingales to nightjars come within our brief.

To cover the cost of speakers and guides we pay £10 subscription in December or January for the following year. We also ask for £1 each when the venue is the library to pay for the room hire.

Whenever possible we car-share and we have an accepted formula for contributing to travelling expenses.
