As I’m sure many of you know that New Forest is a unique and outstanding place for wildlife. However not everyone knows how quite how special it is for freshwater wildlife too.
This July we, the Freshwater Habitats Trust, are holding the New Forest Water Wildlife Month. This is a celebration of the fantastic freshwaters of the New Forest.
We will be holding events every weekend through the month, offering opportunities for people to learn about and interact with their local ponds, rivers and stream. The events also offer the chance to take part in conservation work for some of the Forest’s rarest wetland plants and animals, and in current research on water quality.
For a full list of event please visit our website: http://freshwaterhabitats.org.uk/projects/new-forest-water-wildlife-month/
All the events are completely free and open to all, although places are limited so please book by emailing Jo at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please can you share this email with your contacts, friends, family and anyone else you think might be interested in getting involved. Information can also be found on social media (#NewForestWaterMonth), please retweet us.

War time Ibsley
It has been a quiet village in the Avon valley from before the Domesday book, but Ibsley was very different in the 1940s. The construction of an airfield and numerous military buildings led to an invasion of displaced people from Southampton, building workers, prisoners of war, RAF personnel, lots of Americans and even land army girls. The nature of the buildings is hinted at by some of the remains now mostly grown over. Mr R. Errington will give an illustrated talk on “What Ibsley looked like in WWII” at 7:30 on Tuesday 15th November in Ibsley village hall. This is followed by the hall AGM. All are welcome, admission is free and light refreshments are provided.
