Brown hare Damian Waters SWT10555

Brown Hares, their biology, ecology & mythology in the Countryside (Talk delivered via Zoom)

This talk takes place on Thursday 25th February, 7pm to 8pm.

Proud to be part of Epping Forest District Festival of Culture 

This talk will be delivered as a Zoom Webinar.  You will receive further information concerning joining the talk nearer to the time of the event.  You will need to use the email address that you used to book your ticket to access the talk.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

The presentation covers every aspect of the Brown Hare and it is hoped that it will stimulate the audience to go out and try and see this iconic British mammal for themselves.  

The Brown Hare is a remarkable and often overlooked animal. It's anatomy and physiology are both designed for speed and escape from predators. Their senses are highly tuned to everything in their environment. Given the opportunity, they have a remarkable reproduction rate and will breed all year round. Hares have a long association with Man beginning with the Greeks and extending up to the present day where they still have a role to play in mythology and unfortunately sport. In the today’s countryside Hares are facing a major challenge and modern agriculture does not always favour them. 

The talk is delivered by Bob Reed, a local naturalist with an interest in all aspects of Natural History, but mammals in particular.  He has lived in Sawbridgeworth all his life and is Chairman of the Bishops Stortford Natural History Society. Bob has made it his mission during the pandemic to make everyone aware of the wonderful range of nature and wildlife in the Society’s ‘study area’: a 15 mile diameter circle centring on the middle of the Bishops Stortford. To this end he has put together a range of fortnightly Zoom programmes to replace our usual Winter Programme of talks and presentations.

Darren Tansley (River Catchment Coordinator at Essex Wildlife Trust) explains how and why beavers have returned to Essex after an absence of many hundreds of years. Delving into the benefits for both wildlife and humans, he looks at how this pair of large rodents has already transformed the landscape at Spains Hall and why they are not only helping reduce flooding, but also drought. In a final twist he'll tell us how beavers are assisting Citizen Scientists to map mammal species across the whole river catchment using DNA in water samples.

The Wildlife of Copped Hall and surrounding areas Talk via Zoom

This talk takes place on Thursday 28th January 7pm to 8pm

Proud to be part of Epping Forest District Festival of Culture

This talk will be delivered as a Zoom Webinar.  You will receive further information concerning joining the talk a week before the event.  You will need to use the email address that you used to book your ticket to access the talk.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

Since the mid-1990s, The Copped Hall Trust has been restoring this well-known Georgian mansion, excavating the remains of the historically important Tudor building and recreating the 25 acres of its gardens.  Additionally, the Hall occupies a very special position in being sited within agricultural land which is in close contact with the northern aspects of Epping Forest.  The mapping of the wildlife which shares our site has always been an important component of the project and in 2012 this was given formal recognition by the appointment of Dr Peter Warne.  At first the remit was to monitor the wildlife of the gardens but this has now expanded to include the surrounding buffer land and forest.  It is quite a surprise to find out what lives on our own doorstep. 

Peter is a retired biologist who has found new purpose in tracking the flora and fauna of the area and recording their presence with his photographs which have on several occasions been commended at county and national level.  These photographs will form the visual background to a talk through what he has found throughout the last eight years.
