This was to have been the first of three field meetings on potentially interesting terrain in Filey Bay, a neglected corner of the VC. The dire weather forecast means that we are cancelling on safety grounds.
June 26th 10.00 am
Meet at the 'triangle' at the end of Sands Road. If we cannot park here we will find somewhere nearby. This will be the second of three field meetings on potentially interesting terrain in Filey Bay, a neglected corner of the VC.
Meet at the Wheldrake Ings car park (NOT the Visitor Centre). We will take a brisk walk along the fairly sterile W side of the Derwent as far as the wind pump at East Cottingwith and there discover many delights on the northern side of the East Cottingwith area.
The YNU vc61 meeting this year is looking at North Duffield Carrs. We have been invited to join them on this visit. See their website for more details.

September 11 10.00 am
Wansford Canal & Marsh, TA05
Meeting place to be determined. Keep your eye out for changes as permissions are still being sought.
October 16 10.30 am
Filey North, TA18
Meet near St Oswald Church for the third Filey Bay bash in this fragment of TA18 which has a post 2000 score of fewer than 150 taxa yet has several potentially productive habitats. We will botanise the graveyard, the valleys and cliff top to the Brigg and back through the car park. If time permits we could explore deeper into the back streets for urbanophytes.
The programme may change over the year as new meetings are organised (or existing ones re-scheduled) so keep checking this page. It is always advisable to let Richard or Peter know if you intend to come so we can advise of any late changes.
Clicking on the map references for the meeting places should open up a Google Maps image showing the place we intend to assemble. We look forward to seeing you there.
