The next talk will be held in the Harting Community Hall at 7.30 pm on Thursday 7 February 2019 when Michael Blencowe will talk on “The Wildlife of Our Local Heathlands”. Lowland heathlands are a very rare habitat around the globe and we are lucky in Harting to have some of the country’s best heathland nature reserves close by. The dry, acid conditions found on the heathland present a barrier to a lot of wildlife but many species of animals and plants have adapted so they can survive these inhospitable conditions. For that reason our heathland fauna and flora contains many unique species of birds, insects, reptiles and plants and Michael will be talking about all these wonderful species in his presentation.
