Find out how to help our House Martins - John Walters' talk

Posted June 12th, 2016 at 3:40 pm

Our House Martins are back and they are busy building nests.  But the birds are declining fast and they need our help.  Come along to one of six talks across Dartmoor to find out more about these wonderful birds and what we can do for them.
An illustrated talk by naturalist John Walters starting at 7.00pm is being held at the following venues:

 

Dunsford village hall -  21st June   

Scorriton village hall -  22nd June

Chagford Endecote House - 24th June

Ilsington village hall  - 29th June

Mary Tavy Coronation hall  -  30th June

Horrabridge village hall -1st July

Did you know that a House Martin nest is made from over 1000 pieces of mud? Or that people used to think that they hibernated at the bottom of ponds? John Walters will uncover the secret lives of these amazing birds
and tell you about the Dartmoor House Martin Project that is taking place in six parishes, including Dunsford.
Dartmoor’s House Martins need our help – in the last 30 years they have disappeared from half the places they used to be found in Devon. Come and find out about these wonderful birds and what we can do for them.
FREE ENTRANCE • TALK FINISHES AT 8.15PM • EVERYONE IS WELCOME
WIN A HOUSE MARTIN NEST BOX WORTH £21.95 – SIX PRIZES ON THE NIGHT

This is a partnership project by Devon Birds, DNPA, DPA and Duchy of Cornwall. 

Please spread the word to anyone you know in the Dartmoor area - we want to get as many people as possible involved in the campaign to save these amazing birds.
