Upcoming Events

Field survey at Hamatethy near Camelford

Saturday 7th May - 10:30 am

Hamatethy is a large landholding on the North West side of Bodmin Moor which

is currently undergoing major improvements in management to enhance biodiversity. Earlier in the year, CMG were able to survey here for harvest mice and otters. This visit is primarily aimed at looking for evidence of dormice by searching for the distinctively opened hazel nut shells. There will also be opportunities to look for evidence of deer, otters, and other mustelids and small mammals.

Field Survey at Oldhay Farm near Altarnun

28th-29th May 

Oldhay Farm is a small and traditionally managed farm on the slopes of the Penpont
Water on the edge of Bodmin Moor. This trip will be looking at wildlife in a broader sense: we hope to be joined by botanical and invertebrate experts and to be keeping our eyes peeled for interesting lichens, birds, and amphibians. The site includes some lovely wet woodland and wet meadow, low-intensity grazing and old hedgerows as well as the river. The plan is to set Longworth traps on the Saturday 
evening, possibly accompanied by bat surveys and moth trapping, and then to return on Sunday morning to clear the traps and carry out the other surveys.

 

Please see the flyer here for more details.

Field trip to Lethytep near Lanreath, Looe.

Wednesday 6th July, 14:00

Something a bit different for CMG: an exclusive guided tour of one of Cornwall’s wildlife gems. Lethytep is the result of 15 years of managing land for wildlife – a beautiful and inspirational site with incredible wildflower meadows, lakes, and woodland. The invertebrate life is amazing and consequently, there are plenty of birds and, perhaps not so obvious, mammals. This is a great opportunity to see around Philip and Faith Hambly’s ongoing project during the best time of year.
There will be a charge of £10 (payable on the day) which will support their impressive
charity fund-raising and this will include a guided tour of the site and some exceptionally good refreshments. 

 

Please see the flyer here for more details or book your place here.
