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.
Great fox spiders Alopecosa fabrilis were recently found again in Surrey after being feared extinct in the UK. Not seen since the early 1990s, these large spiders were once known at a site not far from Haslemere, so it is possible that they are again on 'our patch'. Click for more details
Some friends from Petersfield sent this wonderful video of a garden spider Araneus diadematus spinning its web in October.
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.
