Wildlife Survey in Curry Rivel

Having spent most of the last two years ( in my spare time of course) helping to write a Local Plan for the parish of Curry Rivel in Somerset we managed to highlight issues concerning Wildlife and the need for conservation.
One out come has been to set up a local Wildlife Survey Group in the village. An important feature of this new initiative is an interactive map using Google maps. On the map we are identifying wildlife sightings within the 6 square miles of our Parish.If you are interested you can visit our page on our local community web site using this link:

National Trust,Lytes Cary, Farming and Wildlife

Our local group of the Somerset Wildlife Trust reminds local members and friends about our next talk. All welcome of course.

Dear Heart of the Levels supporter,
For some time we have wanted to hear George Holmes (Head Ranger) talk on the National Trust property at Lytes Cary. As it is one of the closer properties to the Heart of the Levels area, many of us have visited the house, gardens, or the surrounding farmland and woods. George is going to tell us how he manages to balance the demands of running an on-site farm with the need to provide gardens and outdoor facilities to the general public.
For those planning to visit Lytes Cary this Spring, the talk will help you to familiarise yourselves with the extent of the grounds and the diversity of plant and wildlife that it offers.
The talk starts at 7:30pm on Tuesday 21st February in the Parish Rooms, off the Market Square in Somerton. There will be the opportunity to talk to George after his talk and over a cup of tea or coffee.
Entry as usual is £2.50 for SWT members and £3.00 for non members. 
I hope to see you there.
Roger Dickey | Chairman Heart of the Level Group
