Brecon Local Group mailing list achieves 100 subscribers!

The Brecon Local Group achieved 100 subscribers in early January and continues to grow.  A steady trickle has signed up via the link on the website page and through the meetings.  The talks have continued to attract 30 to 40 people from as far afield as Ystradgynlais and Garth.  The latest talk was about the Welsh Beaver Project given by Alicia Leow-Dyke (Project Officer) which supplied us with many interesting facts.  In December, the winter walk followed by a meal was also well attended.

An enthusiastic team have been planning the summer activities and have put together an exciting programme to be released soon.

The first Annual General Meeting for the Brecon Local Group will be held on Tuesday 28th April, 7.30pm to 9.30pm at The muse, Brecon LD3 7DW.  All are welcome so please come and add your support and ideas.  We hope to form a committee so if you are interested in taking this group forward please contact Pauline 07957 292235 or email p.hill@welshwildlife.org and whether you would like to stand for Chair, Secretary, Treasurer or to assist with planning the programme.

Mammal records on Vicarage Meadows

Pictures of badgers, mice, a fox and a few birds were recorded when we placed wildlife cameras on Vicarage Meadows Nature Reserve.  We proved that bramblings like beech masts, as do the many mice!  The sightings were then recorded with BIS – wired

The remoteness of this reserve makes it very difficult to record many species in any other way.  We may see occasional signs when we do visit but it is good to confirm what is there.
