CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – NOA HIDES RE-OPENING FROM MONDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER 2020

The NOA is opening hides on all reserves to members again from 14th September 2020. There are still some restrictions and please be aware that these are: Face coverings will be required in all NOA hides until further notice, unless you are exempt for wearing them. Only 2 people from different households may use any hide at one time. A single household of more than two people is permitted, provided no-one else is using it. We are still not able to admit visitors inside the Observatory centre at present. We regret the inconvenience to all our members and visitors caused by the loss of use of these facilities during the first five months of the COVID-19 outbreak. Please be considerate of the restrictions we have put in place, allowing us to restore access as safely as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

GO WILD AT DROVE 2019

We do hope that you can join us at Drove Orchards this Saturday 3rd August for Go Wild at Drove between 10am and 4pm, to see the farm's wildlife at close quarters.

This year we are offering a wildlife walk around the farm in the morning, and a shorter family walk suitable for children in the afternoon. This should give everyone a chance to look at plants, bugs and birds on the site. We will be emptying two moth traps, and there will be kid's crafts and activities throughout the day.

The schedule for the day is as follows:

Moth trap 1 – 10.15am
 

Wildlife Walk – 11.30am 

Moth trap 2 – 1pm
 

Family Walk – 2.30pm
