The New Year for the Louth Area Group

Good soggy morning and a happy new year,
The next meeting of the Louth Area Group will be at 7.30 pm in the ConocoPhillips Room, Louth library when Roy Harris will bring some colour to the dreary winter evening as he talks about, ‘The Flowers of the Orkneys’. The entrance fee is £2.50 which includes refreshments. Children are welcome and have free admittance.

I am pleased to report that Rick Hill had a few people helping him to clear the pond at Muckton Wood in November. The next session for a couple of hours will be at 9.30 am this Sunday 10 January. Just turn up in working kit.

Do try to take part in the RSPB Great Garden Bird Watch at the end of the month on 30 and 31 January. It is a national survey and you don’t have to be an RSPB member to take part. All the details will be in the national press and on the RSPB website.
It will be much appreciated if you can send me a list of the birds that you saw as soon as possible after the survey together with the name of the town/village/site where you saw them. I can collate the details and publish them in the LAG Spring Newsletter.

In our own area the mild wet weather has caused Spring to advance. We have primroses and violets out in the garden as well as hectic bird activity. What evidence of an early Spring have you noticed?

The LAG Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday 8 April when I give a report of our past and future activities and we elect the committee members for the next 12 months. Please consider joining the committee we need a least a couple more members. At the AGM members have the opportunity to show a dozen digital pictures for the delectation of those present. The meeting is rounded off with cheese and wine and the opportunity of a chat whilst we raise funds for the LWT with a raffle.

I look forwarding to seeing you or hearing from you.
Best wishes
Ray Woodcock Chairman LAG
