Planning Meeting and a walk around Lezant

A week before our planning meeting and social, sun & snow showers were forecast  but no, we were back to grey cloud and damp but not enough to prevent a determined group walking off their lunch with a stroll through the lanes after a visit to Lezant Church to see the ceramic 'map' of the parish created by Irene Wood to celebrate the millennium and where the carving of a green man in the centre of the porch ceiling reminded us that the year has turned and we can look forward to spring. (Just noticed a bird nest in behind the carving on the right!)

Thanks to everyone, we can also look forward to a programme of varied events which can be viewed from the home page under the All Events Planned heading (click here to link) with details of the next three events appearing very shortly.

We will be re-visiting some locations while others will be new to at least some of us. Starling murmurations; the drama & regeneration of some post industrial mining landscapes; butterflies, moths, crayfish(that's new), watervoles,bats & night-jars are all featured and we have a proposal that we should run a coach trip to Slimbridge in November. One of our group has expressed a wish to walk up to the top of Brown Willy before she gets too old(!) so that is planned, hopefully in time, for July.

And of course, many of us will be supporting the Big Bird and Butterfly Counts and the national Moth Nights.

We will endeavour to advertise details of these events in good time and also on the CWT events listings which will reach a wider audience. 

Thank you to Ian & Irene for hosting the meeting and lunch and to everyone who has contributed.
