History – From very humble beginnings in October 2009 with 12 members, the evolution of Brandis Corner Wildlife Group has been nothing short of inspirational. From a standing start we have gone from strength to strength, thanks to the tireless work and dedication of our committee members and the support, financial and otherwise, of so many other willing and able people. Membership in March 2015 reached an impressive 126.
Events – Our annual programme aims to provide something for each and every one of our members.
We can enjoy regular outdoor activities, such as reserve visits, bird song and nightjar walks and pond dipping. Educational visits and workshops are always well attended where we aim to improve our wildlife knowledge and share new experiences together. Guest speakers join us from October to early May, when indoor meetings are held. The talks cover a diverse range of subjects and are invariably well supported. Some members also participate in local scientific projects and collation of data. Visit our Events page to find out more.
Newsletters – We produce three full colour newsletters per year, in which members actively participate with photographs, stories and editorials and we have received many compliments on the quality and content of our newsletters. The current one and archive copies can be found on the Newsletter page.
Links with other natural history bodies – We work in close association with local wildlife organisations, which include Devon Wildlife Trust, North Devon Nature Improvement Area, Tamar Group of Cornwall Wildlife Trust and the National Trust.
