August 23 2016.

19 Friends of Tide Mills completed a very successful August meeting on Sunday.
We collected just nine sacks worth of rubbish, plus a few larger items, which is very heartening for all of us, especially given the ferocity of the gale on Saturday. A few pieces of Palm Oil were also collected, which visitors need to be mindful of as Palm Oil is known to poison animals, particularly dogs.
After our meeting we enjoyed our Annual Summer Picnic, which is always something we look forward to.
Our Ringed Plover nesting signs for this year's breeding season have now been recovered. Unfortunately, we think there have been no attempts at breeding this year. There has also been no sign of Wheatears nesting. This is disappointing, but possibly due to the wet and relatively cold June earlier on.
Our next meeting is taking place on Sunday the 18th of September, 10.00am til 12, meeting at the old village beach road waymarker.
We always welcome new members to our friendly little band, no matter how much time can be spared- the more we are, the easier it is to ensure Tide Mills stays how we all like to see it.
