Saturday 12th November: LOWER WETMOOR, nr Wickwar
Dear Bath Nats,
This is just a reminder – and a note of caution – regarding the meeting at Lower Wetmoor tomorrow:-
Leader: ALAN FEEST (01225 442161)
Meet: 11.00 Car Park next to Lower Woods Lodge, which is accessed down a stone track opposite Inglestone Farm off the Wickwar to Hawkesbury Upton Road. GR ST 746881 Landranger 172/Explorer 167
Focus: Ferns, Fungi and Feathers
Description: A slow walk around this remarkable ancient woodland, which supports a rich variety of wildlife including some unusual species. At this time of year we will be focussing on birds, ferns and fungi. The paths can be muddy and slippery, and there are some quite steep ascents and descents, which we will try to avoid if ground conditions are poor. Please wear wellington boots. You may wish to bring a packed lunch.
The note of caution is that the track leading down to the car park is quite badly pot-holed, and the depth of some of those pot-holes that are water-filled is quite difficult to judge. So, please take care.
The weather forecast has now improved, indicating that overnight and early morning rain will mostly have cleared by the time the meeting is due to start.
