Storrington Conservation Society – May Newsletter

Song Thrush fledgling

As yet, we are still unable to say when we can resume our work party activities. We look forward to the time when restrictions are lifted or eased and plans can be made.

The pandemic has caused so much sorrow, suffering and hardship that combatting it must be the priority in the meantime. There are some environmental benefits arising from the restrictions, such as the reduction in atmospheric pollution and noise caused by transport. Those fortunate enough to be able to enjoy taking exercise in the fresh air will have been able to appreciate bird song without the roar of traffic. It may be that this will bring about a greater awareness of the value the natural world and the vital need for its conservation. It is also heart warming to hear of so many people being good neighbours in numerous ways. Often at risk to themselves. Perhaps we can hope that a kinder more thoughtful society will emerge from the crisis, with a true regard for those whom we rely. Plus a care for the environment on which we depend for good health.

For information about when our activities will resume, or on becoming a member, please get in touch with Chairman Mick Denness on 01903 745971, or see our website:
