Watch group of the year certificate presentation

Well done everyone on getting recognition in the Watch group of the year again. Here is the photo of the Chief Executive of Nottinghamshire wildlife trust presenting you all with the certificate on our willow seats we made a few years ago.

March meeting

Well done for everyone who turned up in the cold weather to hang the wool nest material bags up around Farndon Willow Holt. A request will be in the June Farndon Focus for any villager who finds a nest in their garden with coloured wool in to let one of the leaders know and we will see how far the wool has been carried and what colours the birds prefer.
April we will be back on the reserve looking for signs of Spring and learning who to identify birds from their colour, size, habitat and song so bring your binoculards and digital cameras with you.
Lastly well done on winning the Highly commended certicate in the watch group of the year competition.

July acyivities

Hi everyone . Exciting month for Farndon watch group as this Saturday we are going on our annual all day outing and this year we are visiting Rutland Osprey Project and hope to see the adult ospreys fishing. We are also taking part Friday evening in the Farndon village's village event on the playing fields behind the Memorial Hall from 5.30pm . So do come and say hello.

This month also sees the meeting at Veolia where they will decide if they are donating the final amount of money we require to get our new education hub built on the Farndon willow holt reserve. It is now 2 years since our old hut was burnt down by vandals and we really miss it expecially when we have lots of equipment to carry to and round the reserve and when it suddenly starts raining during a meeting. So fingers crossed we have something to celebrate soon.
