Society News from July 2016


Posted March 17th, 2020 at 4:01 pm in Meetings by Mike Daniels

In the light of the further measures announced yesterday to deal with the virus, all of us have a role to play in trying to lessen the impacts of the pandemic. Last week we cancelled the AGM until later in the year, and we have now recommended that Indoor Meetings and Field Trips should be postponed for the foreseeable future. Whilst we do not want to have a situation of overkill, we do think that prudent actions we take today will help to keep people safe and healthy now and in the weeks and months to come.

Beesands Ley - problems

Posted July 19th, 2016 at 10:06 pm

Just to let everyone know that Beesands Ley is very quiet at the moment but cattle have strayed from the field on to the walkway and the ramp into the hide has been damaged by the cattle and is unsafe.  We are arranging for repairs to be carried out as quickly as possible but it may take several days before we can get a contractor down to the site.

This Sunday 24th visit Fursdon Estate, nr Exeter

Posted July 19th, 2016 at 12:59 pm

Fursdon Estate is holding a Birds Day this Sunday 24th from 2-5pm in conjunction with Devon Birds.

Normal Garden admission applies - £4.50

Children welcome and free

Fursdon, Cadbury, Exeter, EX5 5JS 01392 860860

The Fursdon Estate is one of Devon's hidden treasures. Tucked away in the rolling hills of mid-Devon, halfway between Exeter and Tiverton, it is 700 acres of woodland, meadows, park and farm land, surrounded by ancient hedges and dotted with venerable old oaks. Volunteers from Devon Birds were invited by David and Catriona Fursdon, the owners, to carry out a bird survey on the estate. Four visits took place in the winter, spring and early summer this year and now the results have been collated.

This Sunday afternoon, come along explore the estate on a number of guided walks, visit the house and garden and have a Devon cream tea.  Meet some of the volunteers, find out more about the surveys and the species that were found, see some of the amazing bird photography from the survey days.
