Jim Skinner reports:

Seventeen Friends of Tide Mills completed their July meeting today, the first of the school holiday season. Just six bags of general litter were collected this time round and we are very pleased to be able to report that so far the amount of litter remains relatively low across the whole of this fantastic area.

This is in no small part to the many visitors who, like us, want to see Tide Mills in its best light and well cared for and who make the time to keep the area clear of rubbish. This joint effort makes all the difference and is essential to ensure Tide Mills continues to be this fantastic, quiet space for all.

One or two illicit camps have now taken place, which is a pity and not really practical due to there being no facilities whatsoever, although there is the very fine campsite along at the Buckle of course.

The whole area is currently looking great, with a wonderful display of wild flowers and birds just now. Encouragingly at least, one pair of Ringed Plovers may have fledged young. Hopefully this will be confirmed next month.

Our next meeting is Sunday the 16th of August and will include our annual Summer Picnic. Our meetings are always the third Sunday of the month. We meet between 10 and 12, but any time that can be spared is appreciated just the same.
