Little Garden Birdwatch

Remember to get tweeting and twittering this weekend!

 

Over the weekend of 30-31 January the RSPB is running their annual Big Garden Birdwatch. ( See RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch for more details ). In conjunction with this we will once again run our own Alsop, Ballidon, Pikehall and Parwich Little Garden Birdwatch. Whilst the RSPB want to know numbers of different bird species seen during a one hour period  we simply what to know what species have been seen over the weekend in and around the villages. There will be a post to log sightings available over the weekend. For anyone doubtful of their bird recognition skills the RSPB site is pretty good, where you can find an A-Z Guide and useful tools to help identify a specific bird sighting.

Our target for the weekend is a challenging 40 different species so the more taking part the better.

Listed below are some of the species we hope will be spotted (more…)

Go Careful on the B5056

Over the last 3 weeks we’ve had reports of 3 accidents and a number of other drivers mentioning minor slides on black ice on the B5056 near the Tissington ford. The stretch of road in question is the 300-400m between the ford turning and the sharp left bend in the direction of Ashbourne.

B5056-1

This stretch seems to sit in a frost pocket and with the flow of water from the saturated fields above washing any grit away black ice is forming along the road. Please drive with extra care over this stretch particularly on early frosty mornings.

B5056-2

Though the weather is quite mild just now the forecast does show several cold nights with the risk of frost over the next couple of weeks.

 

Safe driving!

The Oxford Concert Party

Look out for an exciting upcoming live event at the Memorial Hall on Thursday 11th of February with music from the Oxford Concert Party.

Here are a couple of clips from their YouTube channel which give a feeling for what we can expect:
