What to bring

Suitable equipment for collecting. Waterproof footwear is recommended for most sites. Identification book, hand lens and notebook etc. Where a packed lunch is essential this is indicated in the foray programme.

Length of forays

Forays always start in the morning and normally last until lunchtime but may continue into the afternoon when conditions are favourable.

Severe weather

If weather conditions are exceptionally severe the foray may be cancelled. Many of the sites we visit are woodlands and strong gales pose a significant risk for such sites especially.  We wouldn’t normally cancel a foray just for rain. If you are in any doubt you should telephone David Farley (Foray Organiser: 01647 252 866) on the morning of the foray between 8.00 and 8.30am.
