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.

Visit to Clampitt/Kennick/Tottiford - Tuesday 13th March

Posted March 17th, 2018 at 10:00 am in Mid Devon Branch by Mike Daniels

9 DB members met for the Mid Devon field meeting around Clampitt Estate, passing by the Quaker Burial Ground and on the hillside overlooking KennickReservoir. We then walked around the north end of Tottiford and on our way stopped to sit in the beautiful sunshine overlooking the reservoir for a picnic lunch! Water level was very high on all the reservoirs. There was great interest in watching the frogs below the banks of the reservoir where there was also a large expanse of frog spawn. A total of 39 bird species were seen/heard which included: 6 Goosander, Tufted Duck, Lesser Black Backed Gull,Cormorant, Little Grebe, Mistle Thrush, Song Thrush, Marsh Tit, Tree Creeper, Siskin, Goldcrest, Redwing, Pied Wagtail, Grey Wagtail and Raven. A very enjoyable day with good company.

The next Field Meeting - Steps Bridge- Tuesday 27 March at 9.00am. Please note the earlier start time
