Interested in Wildlife? Then Read on...
Sheriff Hutton Field Naturalists is a social group, interested in the natural world who meet once a month, aiming to learn a bit more about the wildlife and natural history of the area.
From April to September we have a monthly field trip to different locations to see what each site can offer up in terms of flora and fauna. In recent times the group have visited RSPB sites such as Leighton Moss and Bempton Cliffs, the Yorkshire Wild Trust’s Potteric Carr reserve, Pocklington Canal in search of dragon flies and Cayton Bay in search of fossils. Details of meeting times and places can be found in the Village News every month.
From October to March we meet once a month, usually on the first Wednesday at the Village Hall starting at 7.30pm. Guest speakers talk on all aspects of the natural world. Recent speakers have talked about red squirrels in Northumberland, the history and wildlife of the River Foss and bumblebee conservation.
The group issues programmes for both winter and summer meetings to all its members. These are also published in the Village News.
New members are always welcome; if you are interested in this group you will be able to find contacts in The Village News on this web site.
