August 2018 Meeting & Events

Wednesday 8th August 8pm. Monthly Meeting at Carmarthen Veterinary Centre.
Steve Lucas from the Bat Conservation Society is coming to talk to us and give us a chance to do some bat spotting!
Report
Steve gave us an excellent informative and illustrated talk on bats. We learnt about the species found in Wales, their population status and the kind of habitats each species preferred. It would seem that Pembrokeshire is particularly well-endowed with bats both in species, type and numbers. Steve also covered bat physiology, emphasising their differing needs for feeding, breeding, overwintering and raising young. As well as emphasising that the best way to help conserve bats is to manage their habitats appropriately.

Sunday 12th August 11am. Farm Sale Mynyddcerrig, Llanelli
This is a chance to pick up a bargain or sell a no longer needed item that is related to smallholding items.
Pam has sold her holding and although her purchasers are buying it as a going concern there are still some items to sell.  This is not an auction but more of a car boot or farm barn sale.
If members have related items they would like to sell then they are welcome to bring them along.

Just to remind to members that it is normally necessary to bring a cup and sandwiches for lunch and if you wish a chair to sit in. We are often offered cake at these walks but this is entirely at the host’s discretion.
