« Last post by David Minter on August 16, 2018, 09:02:46 am »
Leader. Organized by the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust. Location. Margrove Heritage Centre, Margrove Park [postcode TS123BZ]. Date. 6 September 2018. Time. 10.00-15:30. Notes. Club Members welcome. Booking is essential. Join Kenny Crooks, Mammal Officer, for an opportunity to learn how to dissect barn owl pellets. Owl pellets are the indigestible remains of the owl's food, which have been regurgitated. The pellets have all been collected in East Cleveland, so will provide us with lots of information about our small mammals and the regional barn owl diet. In this workshop, you will get the chance to learn a little about barn owls, have a go at dissecting pellets and identifying any remains that you find. No previous experience or knowledge is required. Attendees are asked to help with on-going barn owl pellet analysis as part of the Barn Owl Nest Box Network project. The event is free but lunch is not provided. Please bring a packed lunch. Places are limited (max. 10). The Nest Box Network Project is supported by funding from Northumbrian Water’s Branch Out Scheme and National Lottery players through the Heritage Lottery Fund. Contact.

News and Announcements / Autumn 2016 weather
« Last post by Peter Wallace on December 12, 2016, 08:21:25 pm »
Autumn 2016 was warmer and dryer than usual with about average sunshine.
Although November was colder than normal, this was more than compensated for by the warm conditions in September and October. Rainfall in November was above normal, but the dry conditions during September and October meant that overall the autumnal rainfall total was well short of the 30 year average of 188mm.
Soil temperatures were also well above normal - at 30cm depth, the mean of 11.9°C was 0.9 higher than average.
