FRIENDS OF TIDE MILLS - MARCH REPORT
March 16 2015.

The Friends of Tide Mills completed it's March meeting yesterday in a very bracing breeze to say the least. Nineteen, including two very welcome new members, managed 16 sacks of rubbish and various other larger items.
Our bird nesting signs erected in February are still in place, which was very pleasing. Last year a pair of these little birds had their best Tide Mills breeding success that we know of, successfully raising several young. Obviously as these birds nest on the ground, any disturbance is likely to cause breeding failure, so we do ask that people, and dogs in particular, are kept from entering the breeding area. The signs will be recovered during the Summer and we hope this will not become a problem.
Our next meeting is Sunday the 19th of April (always the third Sunday of each month), meeting at 10.00am at the Waymarker adjacent to the beach at the road leading from the level crossing.
Our meetings last nominally for two hours, but all are welcome no matter how much time can be spared. Please do join us. We really are seeing major progress now in the care of this wonderful place.
