Field trip to Thursley Common
Forthcoming Field Trip to Thursley Common, Surrey on 5th June 2016
The meet-up time for this trip is 0930. The site is best approached by taking the B3001, south-east from Farnham for about 3 miles until you reach the village of Elstead. Shortly after entering the village you will see a right turn heading to Thursley. Take this road, and in about 1-1 1/2 miles you will see a car park on your left, amongst trees. This is our meeting point. Thursley is a delightful place and the range of woodland, heath and bog is rich in birdlife with upwards of 140 species recorded, but it is also rich in insect life with some 29 species of dragonfly recorded. Bird species we will be particularly looking for are Dartford Warbler, Tree Pipit, Stonechat, Woodlark, Common Redstart and Hobby. Hope to see you there.
