Biodiversity Events 2009

This year has been a very busy one, with numerous events organised onder the CCW-funded Biodiversity project:

We have organised three children’s events beginning with a ‘Crazy Cuckoo Count’ in the spring, an afternoon of pond-dipping and a session in Parcy Bwlch where Ysgol Bodfeurig watched a tree being felled and sawn. The timber will be used for nestboxes to be distributed around the village as part of the Beacon project.

In the summer many volunteers helped to map Himalayan Balsam in the Mynydd Llandygai area and several areas that were located were cleared of plants before their seed pods exploded. With a bit more effort next year these sites should be almost clear of this invasive plant.

Other events included a fungi foray led by Charles Aron, sessions on ‘wild foods’’; woodland bird-call identification;  two evening Bat walks and a family picnic and natural dyeing demonstration.

Many people also helped to map the presence of threatened ‘Biodiversity Action Plan’ (BAP) species around the village but there are still many gaps. Please complete and return the BAP species questionnaire if you haven’t already done so!
