We are very sorry to say that all meetings so far have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 emergency.
However, we are trying to provide our winter talks on-line, using Zoom. Click here for details
Each month, we summarise some of the most interesting news from our Facebook account. Click here for details.
NATURE RESERVE - CAN YOU HELP?
Several of our members have enjoyed visiting this site, which has now been put up for sale. The Friends of Tice's Meadow have applied for a grant from Surrey County Council's Your Fund scheme in an attempt to secure the land in trust for the community.
It will help if support is registered by 'liking' the Friend's submission on the Your Fund Surrey map:
IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE
Dave Burges, who for many years sent in bird sightings on Black Down, has now moved to live in France. To our members he says that if anyone is passing through the Orb Valley, near Montpellier, in future they are welcome to get in touch by e-mail. He could give them some top tips on birding hotspots in the area and, Covid-19 permitting, possible offer of accommodation too.
PLANT EXTINCTION AROUND HASLEMERE
Andy Swan has produced a list of plants now thought to have disappeared from the area. Any new information on these species would be very welcome – please e-mail us if you can help.
A number of HNHS Science Papers have been produced over the years. They may be viewed in the library of Haslemere Educational Museum. Click here for details.
All are out-of print, except that printed copies of Ponsonby (1978) may be available on request to Andy Swan (free of charge). Struthers (2020) and, it is anticipated, papers published subsequently, will be available as digital copies from this web site. The Society is also considering making available scanned copies of selected old papers.
AREA BIRD E-MAIL GROUP
Ed Stubbs tells us of this group, covering a loose area down to Haslemere. They post sightings and chat about wildlife. If you're interested e-mail us, and we'll pass on your details to Ed.
The British Trust for Ornithology is always interested to hear of uncommon bird sightings. See their web site for details of the various recording and survey schemes they run to see if you can help.
