Just a brief post to remind everyone about the upcoming Meadow Group meeting this coming Saturday. Do come if you can.
Saturday 24th October 2015, 10:30-13:00.
There will be an autumn meeting of the Carmarthenshire Meadows Group at Pontargothi Hall, Pontargothi (on the A40 between Llandeilo and Carmarthen). It will start at 10:30 and finish around 13:30.
We are very lucky that Stephanie Tyler who started the Monmouthshire Meadows Group can come and speak to us about their group and hopefully provide us all with plenty of ideas and inspiration. In addition Charles Morgan (RSPB, formerly from PONT the Welsh grazing animals project) will talk about managing grasslands with grazing animals and Bruce Langridge will talk about waxcaps – it will be the perfect time of year for you to search for these fascinating fungi on your meadows.
Isabel needs to know numbers, so contact her to let her know if you are coming and please tell anyone you think would be interested about this meeting.
Isabel would also like to have a display of photos of our meadows so please send any suitable images to her before hand. Also if you have any other ideas for the meeting then again, do please email her!

I’m hoping Bruce might be able to put some names to some of the above, which I’ve spotted earlier this year in our fields.
