RECORDED SPECIES IN THE BRIERDENE WILDLIFE SITE IS NOW 1003





NEWS


Our judge for the RHS IYN award this year was Marion Foster, as our patron she had to declare an interest with us before judging.

As well as judging us she visited all areas of the site and met all the volunteers that were working in the dene. We even arranged for her to visit the lower dene in the pick-up.


The results of the judging will be announced later in the year.
















The Green Flag Pennant was presented to us by the mayor of North Tyneside, although Norma Redfern who, although she had other commitments. had a short tour of the work we were doing on the dene top.


She thanked the volunteers for the hours they had put in and their commitment to maintaining and improving the site, and valued the support of the members and sponsors that were helping to maintain a rather special area for the wildlife and the local community.




MOTH NIGHT


We managed to record over 48 different species of moths on the night; of these 13 had not been recorded before. More details of these species are on the species information of our website.
