On 3rd June COPSE teamed-up with Haslemere Biodiversity Group (HBG), at Haslemere’s Jubilee Charter Fair, giving Yellow Rattle plugs away to residents in return for photos on how their wildflower areas flourish. COPSE also promoted our Platinum Jubilee Project and HBG displayed the Wildlife Corridors identified across the Town and Biodiversity Mini-projects. Later in June along a woodland Wildlife Corridor in the Town, Gareth with the Surrey Dormice Group picked-up a pair of Dormice in torpor, sleeping-off the ‘June Gap’, when forage is in short supply. Tree and hedgerow flowers are over, but berries and nuts have not yet developed.
