HASLEMERE BIOBLITZ -
to 30th June 2019
We are running our first bioblitz in June, to see just how many species can be found within 1 km of Haslemere Town Hall.
Members of the public and local specialists are invited to submit their findings to our team at the museum, and we hope our members will all get involved too. Information on how to take part will be posted on the web site soon, but meantime click here for more details.
In August 2018 at the Bat Field Meeting a new member, Ben Garland, joined the Society and also came to the Field Meeting at Killinghurst in October. Unfortunately he did not give us his postal address and we are unable to send him our programmes. Please contact us Ben!
DRAGONFLY COUNT - CAN YOU HELP?
The British Dragonfly Society is running a citizen science project this summer to identify surviving populations of the rare common clubtail.
A number of sites on the River Arun need to be surveyed three times on warm sunny days. If you think you could help see the Clubtail Count project page for more information.
FIELD MEETING REARRANGED
Our Kingley Vale field meeting scheduled for 16th March was sadly cancelled due to the threat of severe gales and consequent dangers in the woodland.
However, an additional meeting will be held at this site on 3rd August at which we will hopefully see the resident colony of chalkhill blue butterflies.
THE ADDERS OF MARLEY COMMON
During 2014 and 2015 the society funded a study of the adders on Marley Common aimed at understanding the movements of males during the mating season and their foraging behaviour.
A preliminary report of the study findings can be downloaded by clicking here.

GODALMING 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.
