We begin the year aton when Dave Miller LWT Warden for the Coast and the Wash will tell us about ‘The Living Seas of Lincolnshire’.
Remember we have a new meeting venue. The indoor meetings are now held in the Methodist Church Hall at Nichol Hill, Louth. There are no stairs to climb, wheelchair access is good, so is the audio-visual system, all the chairs are set out and are comfortable and the hire charge is within the LAG budget.
Entry is £2.50 for adults. Children are most welcome and are not charged.
BIG GARDEN BIRDWATCH
The weekend of firstname.lastname@example.org the time for us all to take part in the Great Garden Bird Watch. Last year many of you forwarded copies of your results to me which enabled me to collate them and to discover which species we have in the LAG area. Please do the same this year on
We need someone to deliver Lapwings to the Newmarket, Linden Walk, Robinson Lane area of Louth. If you can help, contact Louise via email@example.com .
The beach is now empty after a most successful year. 1959 seal pups were recorded which is a 3.5% increase over last year. We have seen some wonderful pictures on Facebook and on 19 December Judith, a star photographer, reported, ‘Another great day down at Donna Nook. There is always something different and today the beach patrol was done by a very elegant, healthy looking fox! I have never seen a fox on the beach in broad daylight among the seals in my 8 years of volunteering. A wonderful sight.’
AGM DIGITAL PHOTO SHOW
I hope that the fox picture will be amongst those that will be shown at April’s AGM. Let me know fairly soon if you have pictures to show - more details next month.
2018 MEETINGS PROGRAMME
The committee members are currently planning the 2018 programme. Do send me your ideas for places to visit and topics that you would like to have included in the programme.
Our committee membership is dwindling because of family commitments, ill health and relocation. There is a present requirement for at least 3 more members to join the committee/team. We meet about five times a year and administer the running of the group. We have to appoint a new Treasurer at the AGM. We also need people willing to give a hand at some of our 6 indoor meetings to help with refreshments. If you have a glimmer of interest and want more details just let me know on 01507 606880 or on firstname.lastname@example.org
