BUDDING WRITERS WANTED!!

It’s that time of year again folks. As usual we are desperate for articles, this time for the Annual Report and the Newsletter, these publications are yours and to make them good we need your help.  It doesn’t need to be artistic or good spelling or punctuation, if you have an idea get it down on paper and send it to us.

If you know of somebody’s photo that should be considered for the publications let us know.

          SURVEY, VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

CANAL & RIVER TRUST, TUNNEL END, MARSDEN.

We have been asked to carry out the above on the nature reserve there. It will be an ongoing study for them (and us) to get a better idea of the species frequenting the reserve throughout the year.  Anyone wishing to take part just go along whenever it is convenient and let Mike Pinder have your records. Email pinder.uk@btinternet.com address M. Pinder, Koulara, Garfield Place, Marsden. HD7 6DA.

Tel.01484 840881.

Anyone wishing to take part and doesn’t know the area, let Mike or myself know and we will provide directions or a map. It is easy to find, being the woodland either side of the towpath on the canal W. from the station and the wet area immediately upstream from the visitor centre at Tunnel End.  All species are needed whether common or not as their intention is to ‘upgrade’ the reserve with hide nest boxes etc. with a view to organising educational visits by schools etc., though not big the area does show promise and has turned up interesting things in the past, including Water Rail, mainly due to JMP and could well do so in the future. It is also a nice place for a stroll and a Coffee at the Visitor Centre.
