Wyke Farm, Chedington, surveying weekend June 28th - 30th 2024

The land area linked to Wyke Farm is now around 1000 acres and includes the wonderful Whitevine Farm which is just over the Somerset border and part of which is a SSSI hay meadow.

The aim of this weekend is to bring together people with expertise in certain fields and others with an interest but less knowledge and experience and try to find out together what species we can add to the lists of fauna and flora so far accumulated for the area and at the same time help the learners build up their experience and id skills.

Sadly we had to cancel last year’s weekend as it turned out to be possibly the windiest and wettest weekend of the summer! Hoping for better luck this year!
