Portal Woodlands Conservation Group

Sadly, our public glow worm survey and bat walk, normally on the last Friday of June, did not go ahead due to the virus, but two of the group’s members walked the normal survey route. Continuing recent low counts, only one female was spotted in the woods but, quite amazingly, two males were with her. See last month’s article for more information on glow worms.

Regular visitors to the woods may have noticed the appearance of a Stickman trail for a couple of weeks during June. This was kindly created by a local resident and her young son to provide some enjoyment for children and families during lockdown. It was fantastic to see so many people coming along to participate, including local schools and nurseries.

If you would like to do a similar, or any other kind of activity in the woods, it is essential for you to contact us so that we can advise on how to do it safely and without damaging the wildlife environment. Any unauthorised posters or trails will unfortunately have to be removed.

To their delight, a walker spotted some impressive parasol fungi in early July. If you are visiting our woods and spot any interesting wildlife then please do let us know.

All upcoming events have been cancelled due to the coronavirus. However, if you would like to sign up or get in touch we are always pleased to welcome new faces.

New volunteers of all ages and abilities are always welcome. No experience is needed. For further information, please contact us at [email protected] / 01473 612632, visit our website: www.pwcg.onesuffolk.net or join our members’ Facebook Group by messaging Duncan Sweeting.
